Arminas Jasikonis has sustained a dislocated hip, after the US Grand Prix and round seven of the MXGP championship.
The Lithuanian youngster, who looked fast all weekend and had just moved into third place in the opening moto onboard his RM-Z450, crashed on landing after jumping the tabletop. He dislocated his right him after tangling with his bike.
Team manager, Stefan Everts, said of the injury, "He got a good start, moving into third position and was jumping the tabletop when the bike dug-in on soft ground as he landed. He went over the handlebars and the bike hit him and he dislocated his right hip. It was put back by the medical team at the circuit.
"A hip dislocation normally takes many months to come back fully, so we’ll just have to wait and see. Obviously we all wish him the best and will do everything we can to make his recovery as swift as possible."
