  • This will be Christian’s third spell with the Tigers having ridden in 2003 and as part of the 2011 side which won the Premier League.

    He first rode in the UK for Edinburgh in 2000 but never really rose above second string level with his best season being with the Tigers in 2003. He missed the 2004 season and had a fair year at Newcastle in 2005 before making a breakthrough in 2006 with a 7.37 average, which he increased by another point in 2007. A serious injury in 2009 seemed to have finished his UK career but he returned in 2011 with the Tigers, although injury again curtailed his season. It was back to Newcastle in 2012 where he stayed until May of this year, when he was surprisingly dropped when the Diamonds brought in Danny King.

    His first ever UK meeting was for Ashfield at Sheffield in 2000 in the Conference League!!
