Australian Travis Meyer is yet another talent joining the Garmin-Slipstream Pro-tour team. Meyer will be joining older brother Cameron Meyer and fellow countryman Jack Bobridge, the Under 23 World Time Trial Champion.

“Travis is an incredible talent,” said Jonathan Vaughters, Director Sportif of Team Garmin-Slipstream in a press release. “Like his brother, he excels on the road and on the track. We always say our team feels like a family, and with these two on the road with us, it literally will be for them. Travis is an exciting addition to our roster.”

The Meyer brothers have already ruled the track circuit, with Travis taking five World titles in the junior categories. His road palmares are equally lengthy, winning the Tour de Berlin and New Zealand’s Tour of Wellington last year. He took silver behind Bobridge at this year’s Australian U23 Time Trial Championships.

“Team Garmin-Slipstream has the best reputation for helping young riders like me reach their full potential, so the opportunity to work with them was a natural progression for me,” said Meyer. “And, Cameron and I are very close. Being able to race alongside him and learn from him and the other amazing riders on this team is really exciting.”
