The Aussies are back.

Cameron Meyer, making his return after a five-month break from professional cycling for personal reasons, and Callum Scotson – making his Six Day debut – impressed everyone with a third-place finish at Six Day London last year.

Their combination of youth and experience proved a profitable partnership as the pair powered onto the podium.

And after enjoying the experience so much, they’re back for 2017 and aiming for the podium once again – but this time the top step.


“The excitement of the racing, and also the organisation – it was a great event in that it was so well organised, the public really liked it and it just had so much excitement behind it – all contributed to us deciding to race again this year,” said the 29-year-old

“It was great racing and for us as riders there was no reason not to want to come again.”

The duo, riding their first Six Day together, enjoyed plenty of success on the Lee Valley VeloPark velodrome boards and used it as a launchpad for a new Madison partnership that went on to win silver at the World Championships this year – with France’s Benjamin Thomas and Morgan Kneisky taking gold and Belgium’s Moreno de Pauw and Kenny de Ketele rounding out an all-Six Day podium.

Meyer also won world team pursuit gold with Australia, and took individual points race glory, leading to him re-signing with Australian UCI WorldTour team Orica-Scott from next season – a move he credited Six Day London 2016 with making happen.

“London definitely played an important role with my WorldTour road return,” he added. “It was my first race back after my break and to be at such a prestigious, big event, like that, racing the best in the world and having a good performance, definitely helped me towards my season.

“I had a good track season, which then contributed to having some interest from the WorldTour teams and eventually being able to sign with Orica-Scott.

“They’re on board with allowing me to pursue my dreams on both track and road, and that’s why I’m definitely coming back to London, it kicked off my season really well last year, and I’m looking forward to coming back.”

Scotson also enjoyed a fine season off the back of Six Day London, going on to win the Australian U23 time trial championships for a second successive year, before partnering Meyer to that Madison world silver medal.

And Meyer knows there is more to come from his 21-year-old partner in crime.

“It was Callum’s first Six Day, last year, and his first time really going up against that high a calibre of field, day after day having to compete against the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins and Mark Cavendish – top international riders,” added Meyer.

“For him it was a big step up and also it was his first big step towards his track season, where he eventually grew to making the podium with a silver medal in the World Championships.

“So it was a big event for him, he really liked it, he rode really well.

“And this year I think people will see an even better rider as he’s got another year under his belt, a little bit older, a little bit more mature, and I think he’ll come back even better this year in London.”
