"I'm out of the MXON this year. I have been having scans over the last two weeks – the doctors have said it will be too risky and that my lung could collapse if I push my body/lung to its limits too early. So I’m out of the Nations for this year. It's really disappointing, because I have been looking forward to this race for a long time now! Good luck to Mark and all the boys on the GB squad for Assen! The docs say I'll be good to start pushing again by early October just a shame all the races are over by then."
Max Anstie, Ben Watson and Shaun Simpson were initially named as the three riders on Team Great Britain. However, replacements for Anstie and Watson have not yet been named.
