Meyer follows Wiggins' path to Tour de France

Cameron Meyer wins overall, Tour Down Under 2011, stage six

Aussie Cameron Meyer wants to follow a similar road to Sky's Bradley Wiggins. Meyer won the Tour Down Under this year and eventually wants to aim for the Tour de France. Now, though, he remains focused on racing the Giro d'Italia and the London Olympics next year.

"Bradley, he's such a role model. I'd like to follow his path, he converted himself to ride to fourth in the Tour de France. Further down the road, I'd like to ride the Tour as he has done," Meyer said this morning ahead of the Giro's stage to Parma.
