Meyer down, not out

By Les Clarke in Adelaide, South Australia

Garmin-Slipstream rider Cameron Meyer will continue in the Tour Down Under tomorrow despite dislocating his shoulder in a crash during today's second stage from Hahndorf to Stirling.

Directeur Sportif Matt White confirmed Meyer's injury and said that it was most likely he would start tomorrow's stage.

"He popped it back in and continued to finish the stage," White told Cyclingnews. "It's obviously causing him some pain but he should start tomorrow."

In his first ProTour race Meyer spent another day working hard to get sprinter Julian Dean to the finish in the first group, and although the team suffered this injury to one of its riders and Dean didn't feature in the finale, it should start tomorrow's proceedings with a full complement and ready to look for a win.
