Bruce likely to miss the entire 2018 season with serious illness :(

https://www.crash.net/rr/news/893420/1/ ... ing-cancer
12-time Isle of Man TT winner Bruce Anstey will miss the 2018 season with his partner revealing he is currently battling cancer for the second time in his life.

Anstey had been gearing up with Padgetts Honda for an eighth successive year but has been described as suffering with ‘multiple tumours in his lungs and a tumour on his spine’ plus a blood clot on his lung.

what he said. GWS Bruce almighty

never forget watching him from Kerrowmoar East (aka someone's garden gate), so smooth and just not lifting anywhere. I can't usually see a race-winner from the side of the road, but that was amazing.

Get well soon Bruce Anstey. Bruce has won before he can win again. Hoping for a good result.
