2008 New Brunswick Sport Awards - Christian Meier NB Male Athlete of the Year

Sport NB hosted its 15th Annual Pitney Bowes Sports Awards Saturday November 15th in Caraquet. The event celebrates the best in New Brunswick sporting community and had a special highlight of the 2008 Olympic & Paralympic Games.

The successful season of the Sussex cyclist, Christian Meier, was marked by a nomination as New Brunswick's Comfort Inn male Athlete of the year. Over unfortunate team complications he had to go through this season, Christian still managed to claim the elite men road race national title, a first ever by an Atlantic rider. A few weeks later, Symmetrics was announcing his transfer to the Garmin-Chipotle cycling team. Lately, this team announced its ProTour status for 2009, so the future looks great of the New Brunswick native.

The successful nomination of Christian Meier, made in partnership with Velo NB, marks a second year of success in a row for the National Cycling Centre - Atlantic Canada at this gala. Last year, the Caisse populaire Dieppe was named sponsor of the year by Sport NB.
