Conor Cummins is well on the road to recovery after his serious crash in last year's Senior TT.
The 'Ramsey Rocket' suffered multiple injuries when he came off his McAdoo Kawasaki at the Verandah, including a badly broken left arm, fractures to bones in his back, a dislocated knee with ligament damage, bruising to his lungs and a hairline fracture to his pelvis.
He has undergone several operations over the past eight months and has rarely been seen outside hospital without crutches.

Conor hopes if all goes well he will be racing again this season (second part of audio file):
