"I was out of it for a couple of weeks," said Byrne. "My family caught the flu, then I got it. My son Zack celebrated his first birthday by going to see the doctor!"
He continued, "I had been working really hard on training since I got the confirmation of the Althea Ducati ride, but I knew something was wrong when I went out for some training on my bicycle. I had to stop early and head home, and I thought maybe I had just been overdoing it a bit. But it was the flu, and I was so ill for a couple of weeks after. But I am much better now and have started training again properly."
