slecht en heel slecht nieuws van 2 IOM TT toppers:

John McGuinness’ hopes of returning to racing at the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races are in doubt once more with the 23-time winner revealing he’s suffered a setback in his recovery from a badly broken leg.

The Morecambe Missile sustained a compound fracture of his tibia and fibia and lost 50mm of bone at last year’s North West 200 in May. The 140mph crash, caused by a technical issue with the Honda Fireblade’s ECU, resulted in McGuinness being fitted with an external fixator for nine months.
Fan-favourite Isle of Man TT rider Bruce Anstey is expected to miss the entire 2018 road racing season after being diagnosed with cancer, his partner has said.

Anny Ramsey announced on Facebook that the 13-time TT winner has “multiple tumours in his lungs and a tumour on his spine”, as well as having a “blood clot on the lung”, and added that Anstey is unlikely to race this year at all as he prepares to undergo treatment.

The 48-year-old New Zealander was due to compete once again for the Padgetts Racing outfit at this year’s Isle of Man TT, as well as the North West 200 event in Northern Ireland next month.
There is much killing to be done.
