Eight rainbow jerseys hang up back home in Perth, even more national championships and there are a further five World Championship medals to add to the tally, too.

But now Cameron Meyer will have to make space for the coveted Six Day London track board trophy on his already packed mantelpiece.

The 29-year-old is also no slouch on the road, with two Grand Tour stage wins under his belt as well as overall victories in the 2011 Tour Down Under and 2015 Herald Sun Tour.

Reading his list of achievements, is it no surprise that praise was heaped upon the Aussie who briefly rode for the same team as Mark Cavendish in 2016, before deciding to take some time away from the bike.

Six Day London 2016 marked his return to the track and he came back with a bang, making the podium with Six Day debutant Callum Scotson.

A year on, the pair jumped up a couple of places to take home the win, and their rivals were not short on praise for the pair.

“Cam Meyer is the best track rider of our generation so we could only try,” said runner-up Cavendish, who Meyer got to sign his jersey after winning.

With Kennaugh adding: “It’s hats off to Cam Meyer really, Callum Scotson was great too. There was nothing you could do, they were the strongest team.”

But it was Kenny de Ketele who gushed with praise about the Aussie who beat him to the points race world title in April.

“The Aussies are really strong, Scotson is getting better every year and he was in good form,” he said.

“And then Cameron Meyer is just an alien. He’s always flying around.

“After that points race at the Worlds, normally when you get a silver you’re thinking about where you lost the gold, but you didn’t need to know much about cycling to see that Cameron was just on another level that day.

“The first thing I said to my coach after the race was that I became world champion of the normal people.

“That is still how I feel about it, he was in another league in that race.

“In some ways it was nice that I was the best of the rest, but still no rainbows for that – but I have a good feeling about it and he was just so strong.”
