American-based Brits Max Anstie and Dean Wilson have both revealed they are ill and will miss the rest of the US season. Anstie has caight Covis while Wilson has Bpstein-Barr virus.
Anstie said: “Ok… spanner to the plan or wrench in the works – I’m positive for COVID. I felt good all week but now I feel like I have been run over by a bus so that’s me out of action until I feel better! “
And Wilson said: “Not the news I wanted to put out but for my well being it’s the best case.
I as well as the team have decided to take time off due to the EBV virus I have been battling all summer. I showed up and pushed through it each race but there comes a point you will keep digging yourself a deeper hole. Even though I was cranking out top 10s I was still no where I should be. But anyways going to take this time to rest & get my energy/blood levels back where they need to be. Thank you all for the support!”
