Anstey unlikely to race in 2018 due to illness

Wed, 11 Apr 2018

12-time TT race winner Bruce Anstey is battling an illness that is expected to prevent him racing during 2018.

The New Zealander's partner Anny Ramsey revealed in a Facebook post that Anstey has multiple tumours in his lungs and one on his spine, as well as a blood clot on the lung.

The 48-year-old, who has previously beaten testicular cancer, is currently waiting for a treatment plan.

Isle of Man TT organisers have wished Anstey the speediest recovery, while Padgetts Racing, who Anstey has ridden for for several years, also wished him well.
