The Canadian has been an integral part some of the Australian team's recent successes and his efforts have now been rewarded with the new deal.
“Every team needs someone like Christian,” said GreenEDGE sporting director Matt White. “In the make-up of the team you have your winners, your developing riders and then guys like Christian who can support either group.
"We can put Christian in any race on the calendar between January and October, and we know exactly what we'll get from him. He's one of the first guys we slot into any roster because he's very stable and very consistent. His work is hugely appreciated from the start of the race until its end.”
Despite his role as a domestique, Meier won both points classifications at Volta a Catalunya last season and has come second in the Canadian National Time Trial Championships four times. He has also won the Canadian National Road Championships in 2008 and he hopes his new deal at GreenEDGE will lead to bigger and better things for him.
“I want to continue to grow as a rider,” said Meier. “On a personal level, the longer I am with the team and doing my job well, the more the team leaders will learn to trust that when I do my job, they can do their job better.
“When I was younger, I never really aspired to be a huge champion myself. Sure, I wanted to win some races but I never thought I’d win the biggest races in the world. Working with guys like Gerro (Simon Gerrans) or Gossy (Matt Goss), who can achieve those big victories with my help, makes me feel like I have achieved something myself.”
