Tour de Suisse concludes - Meyer Sixth in Final ITT; Vande Velde is back in Action

Sunday, June 21, 2009
Switerland - The 76th running of Pro Tour event the Tour de Suisse concluded today and while Garmin finished outside of the top-10, Cameron Meyer (left) did put together a very impressive 6th place finish in today's 39K ITT - just 8 seconds from 3rd - and for Christian Vande Velde the event marked a return to health and the pro peloton.

Here is how team director Johnny Weltz called the action after today:

Last stage of the Tour de Suisse , and it was created for world champ Fabian Cancellara. And he didn’t disappoint. He took an overwhelmingly clear win. But our own Cameron Meyer did a similarly solid performance, especially at his young age and just new on the scene this year. He finished sixth on the stage but was only a few fractions of a second from the podium of the stage!

Ryder Hesjedal was a another good performer on the stage and finished around fifteenth. Tom Danielson and Christian Vande Velde did an ok TT as well. All in all compared with our first TT in the race there was a considerable improvement. It has been a hard ten days of racing, but a good ten days with Christian and Ryder improving their condition.
