After a horrific crash at Mantova last year, it left Arminas Jasikonis in an induced coma and fighting for his life. Quite remarkable he’s already back on his Factory Husqvarna as he prepares for the 2021 MXGP World Championship – what a recovery!
Jasikonis has a fresh start for the 2021 season and has confirmed he’s changed numbers from #27 to #7. Tanel Leok had been running the #7 but after he announced his MXGP retirement, Jasikonis has swopped in to take the lucky #7.
“Blessed for a 2nd chance in this life. And yes this is my new number. #AJ7
Thanks to @tanelleok for giving me this number. Thanks to the whole team and all crew for staying behind me and supporting me”, Jasikonis stated on social media.
