McAdoo Kawasaki Racing issued this update on the progress of their rider Conor Cummins who sustained serious injuries when he crashed at high speed in the Senior TT, just over two weeks ago.
“McAdoo Kawasaki Racing's Conor Cummins is now making good progress after his Isle of Man Senior TT crash.
After a very frustrating week in Nobles Hospital, Conrod was finally moved to Royal Liverpool Hospital for specialist surgery which he underwent on Thursday.
The 11 hour operation fully repaired the damage to his back which is now complete and nature itself will finish the job for Conrod.
Some work was also done on his injured left knee, but this will require further surgery to fully repair the damage at a later date.
All things considered, the big man is in good spirits and is keen to undergo all the necessary treatment in order to return to training as soon as possible.
He's hungry to regain full fitness and will have no problem in putting in the necessary hours in the gym with physio Isla Scott, who has been a real help to Conor over the past weeks.
Many thanks again to all the people who sent cards and good wishes to Conor at this time - it is very much appreciated by Conrod, his family and the McAdoo Kawasaki team.”
