Despite suffering a dislocated hip in the first moto of the USGP, Jasikonis was able to travel back with the team from America and was upgraded to business class in an effort to make the long-distance travel as comfortable as possible. Since back in Belgium, he has seen Dr Alex Demurie and received a promising initial prognosis.
‰ÛÏI will be able to start full movement in about six weeks, I can start cycling and getting back to full fitness. For now, I will be doing physiotherapy to keep my leg moving, so as not to lose any of the muscle mass. I was really lucky because I didn‰Ûªt do any major damage, the leg just popped out and they were able to put it back in. There was no damage to the bone or any nerves. Actually, right now, my ribs are hurting me a lot more. If I turn on my side in my sleep, it is like being stabbed with knife. Even though I will miss these last two races, I think it has been a great year for me with the Suzuki World MXGP team.‰Û
