Lucas Hamilton (Team BikeExchange) is set to replace Cameron Meyer in the Australian team for Tokyo 2020.

Days ago, Meyer announced through a statement that he was withdrawing from the Australian selection for the men's road race for the Olympics Games of Tokyo 2020 due to family reasons (Read more: Cameron Meyer withdraws from Australian Olympic team for Tokyo 2020). His spot was left open, and now the Olympic Committee of the country and the cycling federation have chosen Hamilton as his replacement.

The 25-year-old became a professional in the team currently known as BikeExchange in 2018 although by then he had already shown his talents as a cyclist. He was selected for the 2016 Tour de l'Avenir, where he won the Mountains Classification and finished in the second overall place.

The palmares of Hamilton include the title of the U23 Oceania Road Race Championships in 2017, a ninth place in the 2020 Tour Down Under, the second position in the 2020 National Road Race Championships and a stage victory in the Tirreno Adriatico of that same year -which was his first win in the WorldTour.

The Australian is currently riding the Tour de France and after that he will be making his Olympic debut in the games of Tokyo 2020, where he will join Rohan Dennis and Richie Porte in the Road Race. Jack Haig is also set to start in the competition, but his participation is in doubt due to the crash he suffered at the third stage of the French grand tour.
