In a press release from the Dimension Data barracks it states that Australian Cameron Meyer requested an immediate termination of his two-year contract that began at the start of the year, mentioning personal reasons behind his early departure from the African team.
“Unfortunately I have made the tough decision to leave Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, due to ongoing personal issues I have had of recent. I have been unable to train or race at the required level that is needed for the World Tour”, Said Meyer.
“I can not thank Douglas Ryder enough for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing program. To be able to see at first hand the impact the team makes in Africa through the Qhubeka Foundation and for me to have involvement was truly inspiring.”
“I wish the entire team the best of luck and look forward to watching their many successes to come.”
The team wished Meyer all the best in his future.
