Dan Sayle to make racing return
The Isle of Man's Dan Sayle is set to make a return to road racing at the Blackford’s Pre-TT Classic Road Races in May.
The Sulby rider, who was seriously injured during last year’s Classic TT, will be riding a 250cc Yamaha in the eight-lap Geoff Duke Junior Superbike Race.
Less than a fortnight after his return he will be back in action on the 4.25-mile southside course to race in the 250cc/650cc race at the Colas Post TT Road Races also on a Yamaha twin.
After his long recovery Dan's looking forward to getting back in the saddle ‘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 year's 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.’
Dan came to prominence at the Isle of Man TT as sidecar passenger to Dave Molyneux, he has eight TT victories to his name.
