Cameron Meyer and Leigh Howard have finished off the World Madison Championships with a bronze medal. In front of a home crowd they were heavily marked by all the other teams and often were looked upon to do the lion’s share of the work.
However as the race unfolded the Australian pairing kept attacking the field at every opportunity and eventually took a lap with a few other leading teams. This put them into a position in which they could narrow their focus down to half a dozen other major contenders.
Eventually the Meyer, Howard pairing crossed the line in 3rd place to secure the bronze medal. They have previously been the gold medal winners on the last two occasions and were looking to make I three in a row. This will quite possibly be the last time the boys will ride together as they both look to focus on their road careers.
