  1. "Unfortunately I have made the tough decision to leave Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, due to ongoing personal issues I have had of recent. I have been unable to train or race at the required level that is needed for the World Tour“, Meyer states. The Australian had only joined our African Team at the beginning of this season. "I can not thank Douglas Ryder enough for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing program. To be able to see at first hand the impact the team makes in Africa through the Qhubeka Foundation and for me to have involvement was truly inspiring.“ "I wish the entire team the best of luck and look forward to watching their many successes to come.“ Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka wishes Meyer the best for his future.
  2. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka has released Cameron Meyer with immediate effect. The contract termination was requested by the Australian himself. Citing ongoing personal reasons he hadn’t been able to play an integral role over the last few weeks. Click here to view the article
  3. Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka were part of the early action as Cameron Meyer broke away with Boris Dron (Wanty Groupe Gobert) and Luis Mas Bonet (Caja Rural) inside of the first 10 kilometers of the stage. It would be a medium climbing day as the riders had 5 categorised climbs to deal with after leaving Callela on a 175km circular route. Meyer and his two fellow breakaway mates rode ahead of the peloton to a maximum lead of 7 minutes. The two teams controlling the pace at the head of the peloton though were Movistar and Team Sky. The main obstacle of the day was the category 1 Coll Formic and Team Sky ramped up the pace on the slopes of the Formic. This injection of pace saw Meyer and co. being caught just over the top of the climb and with still 50km to go. Before being caught though, Meyer had accumulated enough points on the first 3 categorised climbs of the day to be awarded the King of the Mountains jersey after stage 1. The peloton had also split due to the high pace on the positive gradient but with still a fair distance to go until the finish in Callela, a number of riders made it back to the peloton. A few riders tried their luck with a late attack on the run home, but with Team Sky setting a consistently high tempo on the mostly downhill 20km to the line, nothing would stick. With no designated sprinter present at the Volta Ciclista a Catalunya, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka would not participate in the mass sprint. It was a good day out for our African Team though as Meyer happily pulled on the red climbers jersey after the stage and the Australian now also sits in 4th position on GC. The first stage of Catalunya is quite tricky as it is a normal road stage, so there is no race leader to start with and no team to take control from the start. So in the past the break has made it on the first stage but today there was a sprinter like Bouhanni so Cofidis also helped to control the break from early on which resulted in a sprint of about 100 riders. For our team we had hoped to have a rider in the break and Cameron was there. Once in the break it became obvious that we should try to win the sprint and KOM jersey.Cameron did really well to pick up enough points for the KOM jersey so he went onto the podium today and he will wear the red jersey tomorrow. We also had 4 riders in the first bunch at the finish line, Merhawi Kudus, Igor Anton, Kanstantsin Siutsou and Cameron were there and this was good because they give us some good options for the GC later in the race. So all in all it was a good day for us. Alex Sans Vega - Sport Director
  4. The second edition of the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race came down to an exciting finale, in which British road race champion Pete Kennaugh (Sky) prooved to be the best. Cameron Meyer, Reinardt Janse van Rensburg and Nathan Haas kept Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka in the mix, with the latter finishing in 6th place on the Geelong Waterfront.

  5. During the week leading up to the race the area around Geelong had seen some bad weather. While the weather was a factor to stay aware of, the sun greeted the riders when they rolled to the start line today. The race started fast, with four riders breaking clear in the first hour of racing. Pat Lane (Avanti) was the driving force in the breakaway. Together with Alessandro De Marchi (BMC) he managed to stay out front for most of the race. The two took on the first of three laps of the challenging final circuit alone, but were soon caught when the peloton decided to chase. The catch resulted in a 12-man counter attack, in which none of the Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders featured. Given that the situation was the same for a few other teams, the attack was short lived and resulted in an escape of Cameron Meyer, Salvatore Pucchio (Sky) and Rafael Valls (Lotto-Soudal). The trio was able to open up a gap of around 20 seconds with about 25 kilometers to go. Eventually, the gap wasn't big enough. On the steepest climb of the circuit Kennaugh bridged over with Nathan and Reinie trying to stay in his wheel. The Brit prooved to be too strong. He managed to ride off the front solo and stayed away for the last kilometers of the day. In an exciting finale the chase group tried to reel him in but had to settle for second. Leigh Howard lead the chase home. Niccolo Bonifazio (Trek-Segafedo) finished in third place with Nathan coming home for us in 6th place. I think, as the new kids on the block we can be really proud of how we rode in the last few weeks here in Australia. We really tried every single time to show ourselves and today was no different. Cam put on a really good show and I came in in 6th. Reinie was also up there, and was probably the strongest sprinter in our group. Unfortunately, we lost each other in the finale when we got cut and then ran out of legs. We can still walk away from the race being proud of the team, I think. Nathan Haas - Rider
  6. The early racing saw a lone escapee, Laurens De Vreese (Astana), jump clear from kilometer zero. The peloton were happy to let him go as it was inevitable that he would be caught before the much awaited climb up Corkscrew Road. The catch took place with 21km to go and it was race on from that point. As riders descended at speeds touching 90km/h toward the start of the Corkscrew climb, there was a crash in the field that saw Songezo Jim and Tyler Farrar both going down. Thankfully our two Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders were able to get up and carry on to the finish, albeit with a bit of help from a spectator who lent Tyler his bike and shoes. The crash though, caused a split in the peloton with around 30 riders forming the front group. The race managed to come back together just as the road ramped up toward the sky. Cameron Meyer, Reinardt Janse van Rensburg and Nathan Haas were all well positioned on the lower slopes of the Corkscrew as race leader Jay McCarthy (Tinkoff) started to up the pace. Richie Porte then followed with a few stinging attacks of his own which really split the field. Our Dimension Data for Qhubeka riders were slightly distanced as 10 riders gaped the field over the top of the Corkscrew. The leaders would not be caught during the hair raising 5km descent to the line. Gerrans would take over the race lead after today's stage win. Cam would be our highest placed rider on the stage, coming home with the first chase group 13 seconds down on the winners and still in contention for a decent overall position. Today was the first stage in the Tour Down Under where we were playing for the GC. In the finale we weren't able to have our 2 leaders, Nathan and Cameron with the leaders but we rode a good race to deliver them to a good position before the start of the Corkscrew climb. The guys tried their best and we did a good job, it was just a shame Tyler crashed about 10km's before the climb but luckily he is okay and for sure he will start tomorrow.

  7. Simon Gerrans (Orica-GreenEDGE) won the 3rd stage of the Santos Tour Down Under from a 10 rider group sprint. Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) was 2nd with Michael Woods (Cannondale) in 3rd place. Click here to view the article
  8. Jack Bobridge (Trek-Segafredo) went on to win the Australian National Road Race after he capitalised on a race long breakaway. Cameron Meyer came home in 2nd position on the day with Patrick Lane (Avanti) securing 3rd place. Click here to view the article
  9. Team Dimension Data rider Cameron Meyer. It was on the first of 18 10.2km laps that a large group of 21 riders went clear over the Mt. Buninyong climb. Eventual race winner Bobridge was part of this escape, as too was our very own Mark Renshaw. With just over 60km raced, the peloton were already 7 minutes down on the break and Bobridge would throw caution to the wind at this point. Bobridge would have Bernard Sulzberger (Drapac) for company as he attacked, but Sulzberger couldn't sustain the pace for all that long and it was Bobridge vs the rest with 90km to go. The rest of the break would be reeled in over the demanding course as Orica-GreenEDGE led the chase. The home team just didn't have the firepower today though and eventually our Cameron Meyer and Rohan Dennis (BMC) could not wait around anymore. With the gap still over 7'00" and 35km left to go, Camo attacked the peloton as Dennis followed. Cam would shake Dennis in the run to the line, at the same time clawing back 4 minutes on the leader but it was just not possible to catch Bobridge, who took a courageous victory. With Cameron coming home in 2nd, Patrick Lane (Avanti) crossed the line alone in 3rd after Dennis had faded while we had Nathan Haas win the small group sprint for 4th. A great start to the year by our African Team. The race was one of the toughest we have had on that course. The heat today made it a war of attrition. I'm really happy with my silver medal. It is my first time on the podium for the road race and unfortunately the peloton gave Jack Bobridge too much of a gap to bring back. He was super strong and deserved the Australian Champions Jersey.I felt really good riding for the first time in my Team Dimension Data kit and working with Nathan Haas and Mark Renshaw was really good. From a three man team to go and finish second and fourth is a great result and fantastic start to our Australian summer races. I am now looking forward to the Tour Down Under. Cameron Meyer - Rider
  10. The Australian National Road Championships will see Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka in competition for the first time this year. All three of our Aussies, Nathan Haas, Cameron Meyer and Mark Renshaw are set to line up for Sunday's road race. Click here to view the article
  11. Taking place in Ballarat once again, the elite men will be racing over a well-known 183.6km. The course has always lent itself to an attacking race with the opportunists in with a good shout during the 18 10.2km laps. As per usual, the two home teams of Orica-GreenEDGE and Drapac Cycling will have to shoulder much of the responsibility for the races outcome as they have a clear advantage in numbers. Our African Team will field three strong contenders for the green and gold stripes in the form of Cameron Meyer who has twice finished 4th during the elite road nationals, Nathan Haas and Mark Renshaw. With history suggesting that it will be either a solo victor or a winner from a small group on Sunday, our boys are keen to challenge for the national jersey. Racing in January is always tricky, timing it right without racing before is an art, but one I think between the three of us somebody will have gotten right.Between Cam, Mark and myself I know we have a very dangerous squad, we just hope it's enough to overthrow the teams with many more guys than us. But when there's a will there's a way, and on a course as hard as Ballarat, with 18 times up the climb, the cream always comes to the top. It's time for some fun. Nathan Haas - Rider
  12. Cameron Meyer will join our South African registered team after having spent the past 4 seasons with the Australian Orica-Greenedge outfit. Meyer, at still only 27 years of age, is a talented time trial rider who has also proven himself on shorter climbs. Testament to Meyers abilities are his overall victories of the Santos Tour Down Under as well as the Herald Sun Tour. As a double Australian Time Trial champion, Meyer was also instrumental in two Grand Tour team trial stage victories. And with already 8 Grand Tours under his belt, Meyer’s experience and tremendous depth will only allow our African Team to reach greater heights on the sporting front as well as in further extending the reach we have for Qhubeka. Meyer is the 6th new addition to our African Team. We look forward to announce the signing of another African talent as our final addition to the 2016 roster. Cameron Meyer – Rider I am very excited to be racing with Team Dimension Data next season. They have had unbelievable results at the biggest races and are moving ahead quickly. I am really looking forward to being a part of their future success. My main motivation for joining this professional racing team was not only the pride I would feel being an ambassador on the bike but also the pride of involvement in the successful work for the Qhubeka Charity.
  13. MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung, who will race as Team Dimension Data from next year onward, are delighted to announce that Cameron Meyer has signed for Africa’s Team. Click here to view the article
  14. “We’re looking to get some good results to finish off the season,” said Sport Director Matt White. “We’d like someone with a high overall placing. We’ll look to Cam for that. We’re also on the hunt for stage wins with Michael Matthews.” Matthews recently won two stages at the Vuelta a España. His double victory in his Grand Tour debut came on the heels of two stage wins and the sprint jersey at the Tour of Utah. The 22-year-old carries his strong late season form to Beijing where he targets the projected bunch sprints on the first and fifth stages. “I think we will see two bunch sprints this year on stage one and five,” said Meyer. “Anything can happen on stages two and three with the hills along the way. Stage four is the hardest, and it’s the first time this race has had a mountain top finish. This is where I think the race will be won, but I think all the racing will be fast and aggressive.” Although Meyer’s early season was disrupted by injury, the second half of his season has shown his promise as an overall contender. Meyer finished sixth overall at Tour of Turkey in April, fifth overall at Amgen Tour of California in May and rounded out the top ten in Tour de Suisse after winning the opening prologue and wearing the yellow leader’s jersey for two days. Although the team had originally looked to Meyer to provide crucial support to Pieter Weening in China, Meyer will now step up into a sole leadership role. Weening was forced to withdraw from Tour of Beijing due to injury sustained during a crash at Il Lombarida on Sunday. “We have some high hopes and big goals for the team this year at Tour of Beijing,” said Meyer. “We have a strong squad. I hope to do something in the overall standings. I think Michael Matthews has a chance at some stage victories, and we also have some riders for the breakaway.” Christian Meier is an obvious option for the escape group. The Canadian has become a common fixture at the front of the field or in the early break. His work paving the way for the results his teammates achieve with his support. “I will be in Beijing to support our leaders the best that I can,” said Meier. “We have a strong team for the sprints as well as the overall. I’ll ride on the front on the sprint days and do my best to support Cam in the mountains.” White is confident his team can close out the year on a high note. He calls the Tour of Beijing a fitting conclusion to the squad’s second season. “We start the season in Australia, and we end the season in China – which is the next closest WorldTour race to home,” said White. “Cycling is the new thing to the Asian continent at this level. The same thing could have been said about Australia 10-15 years ago when the Tour Down Under first arrived. Look how cycling in Australia has changed since then.” “Tour Down Under has been a big part of the change in Australian cycling along with the results achieved by riders from Australia,” White noted. “The Tour of Beijing could be something similar for Asian cycling.”
  15. With Cameron Meyer and Michael Matthews amongst ORICA-GreenEDGE’s eight-rider squad for the Tour of Beijing, the Australian outfit hopes to end the season with a two-pronged approach to the final race of the season. Meyer represents the team’s general classification ambitions while Matthews will chase stage victories. Click here to view the article
