Cameron Meyer (Mitchelton-Scott) has taken the victory of the road race at the Australian National Championships.

Twelve years after his debut at his country's championships, the rider could step on the highest step of the podium. Meyer -who was TT champion in 2011- took the title one year after he won bronze after losing the sprint against Michael Freiberg.

"It's been 12 long years," explained the multiple track world champion. "I fell in love with this race so long ago and I've been so close so many times. Someone asked me the other day, 'you've got nine world championships why do you want this one so much?', but my brother has won it, Luke Durbridge one of my best mates has won it, and I just wanted it so badly.

"I want to put that green and gold on and I want to take it to Europe and wear it proudly. As soon as the summer comes around and I land on Australian soil, this is one of the races I think about. I can't thank my teammates more. I was given a lot of responsibility today with a bit of leadership and there's a lot of pressure that comes with that, but my teammates were incredible. We were on the front foot, we always had someone out front and I had someone helping me the whole time. In the end strength in numbers won and today was my lucky day."
