Arminas Jasikonis dislocates hip at US MXGP
Bad news for Suzuki World MXGP rider Arminas Jasikonis after big crash in the first moto of the USGP left the Lithuanian rider with a dislocated hip.

It was all-the-more unfortunate as the RM-450WS rider had just moved into third place in the race and was looking fast in the sandy conditions.

General Manager Stefan Everts explained what happened in the race and what the future now holds for Jasikonis: ‰ÛÏHe 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‰Ûªs been put back by the medical team and it‰Ûªs not looking too bad but he has to have another check-up scan," Everts continued, "Providing it is all ok, he should be able to travel back with the team tomorrow, but in what condition, I don‰Ûªt know. It will be tough travelling for him but it‰Ûªll be good to get him back to Belgium so we can do all the tests there.

"A hip dislocation normally takes many months to come back fully, so we‰Ûªll 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.‰Û
