Meyer’s 4th Commonwealth Games gold medal, he beat England’s Harry Tanfield and New Zealander Hamish Bond in the lonely race against the clock.

“We sort of scrambled a bike together, did my measurements and we had a crack,” Meyer told Channel 7 after the win, referring to the fact that up until a few days ago he was not planning to contest the TT.

“I had nothing to lose and somehow it paid off,” he continued.

“For the past year and a half I’ve been concentrating on getting back the track and the lead up to the Tokyo Olympics. I couldn't be more thrilled than today … I’m really happy.”
