Australian Pro Continental team Drapac has confirmed that Travis Meyer was hit by a vehicle while training in Andorra on Saturday.

Meyer suffered multiple injuries, including a fractured skull, fractured jaw, broken arm and a bruised lung. He was airlifted from Andorra to a hospital in Barcelona  after the incident.

The younger brother of 2011 Tour Down Under winner Cameron Meyer, Travis Meyer, 24, moved to Drapac in 2014 after two years at Orica-GreenEdge. Prior to that, he spent 2010 and 2011 with Garmin.

Meyer was due to race the Presidential Tour of Turkey later this month.

Meyer’s injury came just one day after American Chris Horner was also seriously injured when he was also hit by a car while training.
