SHAMUS Liptrot is still learning to walk but he dreams of one day getting back on his bike.
The 18-year-old South Australian cyclist suffered devastating injuries when he hit a light pole at last year’s Devonport Carnival.
When transferred home from the Royal Hobart Hospital in March, Shamus was communicating with his family by blinking.
He has since made enormous progress – amazing doctors with his recovery.
Later this week when Coastal cyclists Callan Walker and Sam Brett walk into his Adelaide hospital room and say hello, their friend will finally be able to reply.
