Cameron Meyer wins Tour de Suisse opening time trial

Cameron Meyer wins, Tour de Suisse 2013, stage one

Cameron Meyer (Orica-GreenEdge) was the surprise winner of the opening time trial of the 2013 Tour de Suisse on Saturday after benefitting from a change in the weather.

Meyer was one of the earlier riders off in the short 8.1-kilomtere test against the clock around Quinto and enjoyed calm conditions to set a time of nine minutes and 39 seconds. As he sat in the hot seat, the wind gained speed, with later riders facing a stiff headwind on much of the rolling course.

Nigel Wynn
Former Associate Editor

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, an exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
