Remarkably ,Michael Dunlop has returned to racing duties for the Armoy Road Races, the 19 time Isle of Man TT winner was seen at the Armoy road race despite breaking his pelvis at the Southern 100 just 15 days ago. The horrific high side happened on the 11 July during the 1000cc race.

The Ballymoney rider was not expected to be back so soon but miraculously has been able to swing a leg over a bike this weekend for the Armoy Supersport and Race of legends classes on Friday and Saturday respectively.

This will be a real treat for the fans of the #6 rider, many were not expecting him to compete at this event after such a serious injury.
