2015 Rookie Preview: Ricardo Christie (NZL)

Ricardo Christie - NZL, R                  Rank:  32             Proj: 31

Here's a guy with no CT experience, not even as a WC, and he's never won a QS. So what's he doing in the top crop?   Well, Christie cleaned house in the 2014 MQS as best you can without a win.  He posted 39 heats over 12 events for a sub-average 3.25 REA and 477.04 TFP, but held up an impressive 15.9 AHS over that stretch. With no FA and a sluggish 7 QSF, though, it's tough to see Ricardo faring better than 30th overall this year.
