Watching the racing in New Zealand, the announcers mentioned he just had a tumor removed. I was wondering why he wasn’t at Minsk and Hong Kong.

Australia only sent a small team of enduros to Glasgow and not the other rounds, NZ is the first full team round.

I hope this doesn’t derail his chance to go to the Olympics.

It shouldn't affect him too much. Thyroid cancer is the slowest growing, least aggressive, and least scary form of cancer there is. In fact, there's a growing body of research saying that people with thyroid cancer should just leave it alone and monitor it rather than remove it, as the surgery to remove the thyroid is actually more dangerous than the cancer and adjusting to synthetic thyroid stimulating hormones (TSH) can be challenging. It can take 6-12 months before doctors figure out the proper TSH dosage, and that can affect his recovery and ability to train.
