Suzuki’s Arminas Jasikonis will be forced to ride through the pain of a rib injury at the Lommel MXGP round this weekend after an accident after the Loket round.
Details on the circumstances are scant, but doctors have confirmed nothing is broken and the Lithuanian youngster says he will just have to do the best he can in the deep sand.
“I picked up a little injury to my ribs after Loket, which I just got checked out by a doctor and thankfully he says nothing is broken. Obviously though it is not ideal preparation before such a tough sand GP. I’m still going to try and do my best out there though and I still feel like I can do well,” said Jasikonis.
“I’m also still really excited for Lommel, despite it being difficult with this rib problem. I’m just going to go out there without too much expectation and put on a good show for all the fans and for all the Suzuki World MXGP team members and supporters who will be watching.”
