He'll compete in the Geoff Duke Junior Superbike Race in the Pre-TT Classic Road Races from May 24-27.

Dan suffered serious injuries in an incident in a Classic TT race last year and had treatment for head, chest and spinal injuries.

Dan Sayle said: ‘I am counting the days until I will be back on the gird at Billown for the Pre-TT Classic Races.

‘It has been a long haul since last August, but my determination never deserted me, even at my lowest point to race again and now that I have been discharged from Nobles, I am getting back into a training routine to ensure I am fully fit for May.’ Assistant Race Secretary, Rachel Palmer said: ‘It was no surprise to receive not one but two entries from Dan, he made it clear to everyone that he was going to race again despite the serious injuries he sustained in last years’ Classic TT and he has proved will power and determination can prove any doubters wrong. ‘We all look forward to seeing Dan Sayle back at Billown for the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races and the Colas Post TT Road Races and wish him safe and enjoyable racing.’
