It feels like Tanel Leok has been around forever and it’s clear to see the enthusiasm he has for the sport which he loves.
The Estonian who is now well over the age of thirty is in the process of sorting out his plans for the 2018 season. Leok has been with the 8Biano Husqvarna team for the past few years but it’s now thought that team will focus in the MX2 World Championship meaning Leok is without a ride.
However, Leok has been spotted testing a JD 191 KTM machine as you can see in the image below:
It remains to be seen if both parties will agree a deal but it would be cool to see Leok race the MXGP series again. The Estonian finished a very impressive fifteenth in the world which shows he still has speed and deserves another ride.
If Leok does ink a deal with the JD 191 KTM team it doesn’t necessarily mean he will complete all the rounds as Jara Romančík who was with the team this year didn’t complete the full series.
We will update you on Leok’s future when we know more.
