Eight-time T.T. winner Ian Hutchinson is set to make a dramatic return to road racing.
He has a late entry for next month's Macau Grand Prix riding for Milwaukee Yamaha.
In 2010, Hutchinson achieved something no other rider in T.T. history has - a clean sweep of five solo wins.
However, in September 2010, he suffered compound fractures to his left leg when he fell in wet conditions at Silverstone on the opening lap of the British Supersport Championship race - he was struck by another rider as he lay on the track.
Hutchinson has undergone a whole series of operations since then and missed the 2011 and 2013 seasons.
He did finish third at the 2011 Macau Grand Prix and bravely competed at T.T. 2012.
