Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo confirm Motegi boycott

Current MotoGP world championship leader Casey Stoner and Jorge Lorenzo have confirmed today that they won’t attend the Japanese MotoGP race in October, regardless of whether an independent inspection declares the area around the Twin Ring Motegi safe. Repsol Honda rider Stoner and factory Yamaha rider Lorenzo could face the wrath of their Japanese employers after both made it clear that...

Someone should explain to them that racing motorcycles at over 200 mph is a couple million more times likely to kill or hurt them than spending 4 days in Japan.

Its not like the Japanese falsified paper work and did not complete all the checks that they where supposed to do or anything like that to cause part of this nuclear incident I guess you could believe their independent report. Bravo for CS and JL having the gumption to stand by their convictions. Couple of smart guys with big balls IMHO.

Synchronised Paranoia?


It is true that the Japanese have a tendency to deny, deny, deny ... and then confess and commit hara-kiri.  But I think Jorge and Casey are being illogical in their boycott of Motegi.  The dangers are literally infinitesimal compared to the racetrack they live on, and the only good thing about both of them not going will be that neither gains from the others' ignorance, and maybe it gives Andrea and Dani a sniff of the championship.

So as long as they go or don't go together, it is a case of "Whatever!".

Kudos to the 2.

Those lying Japanese bastards. Never trust them.


1. Cattle fed contaminated hay sent to five prefectures.


2. Fukushima: It's much worse than you think, Scientific experts believe Japan's nuclear disaster to be far worse than governments are revealing to the public.


3. Quake Hits Central Japan, No Nuclear Reactor Problem Reported


4. Nuclear radiation exposure concerns mount for mothers Japan.



Japan is on a fault line, and therefore is a danger that's continual. Japan is unsafe. Period!!!!. Screw Japan. Which rider wants to be told they have to battle cancer 5 to 10 years from now. That would make them all less than 40 years with their death dates known. Screw Japan.

I think they're right not to go to Japan , as supportive as I am intellectually of the Japanese people , I wouldnt trust their reports . Jorge and Casey fear Cancer or Radiation damage and I can't blame them for not going I wouldnt go either.

Will they remove the "With you Japan" logo from the bikes for the Germany race then, as they are clearly not with them.
