Arminas Jasikonis to take time away from MXGP racing
Together with the Gebben van Venrooy Yamaha team, Arminas Jasikonis has made the tough decision to take some time away from MXGP racing and racing at the highest level.
The Lithuanian is still dealing with a head injury and whilst he’s still young has decided to take some time away to focus on his future. In due course, Jasikonis will then decide if he will make a return to the Motocross world and battling in MXGP.
The team fully back Jasikonis with his decision and would like to wish him well for the future whatever it brings.
Arminas Jasikonis: This has been a tough decision to make but together with my team I feel for my career it is important to take time off from the highest level of racing. My head injury together with the little setbacks I have experienced in the past months need time to be assessed. I’m still young and only when I am 100% confident with my health, I will then make a decision for what my future GP racing will bring. I just want to give a big thank you to all our Gebben Van Venrooy Team partners, and also to Klaas, Emile, Ruud and the rest of my team for supporting me in these difficult moments.
