@ notuagain

Almost all bike racers are limited to doing just that.
They are not rocket scientists by any means. That is why they all have managers, advisers, engineers, & even their moms / dads in the pits to help make tough decisions ... like what colour socks to wear.
This is why they can relate to (& hook up with) pretty models, who also need help with the big questions of the universe ... like 'what is 1 + 1?'

Many armchair critics posting here could out-think these riders 8 days a week.

So when the nuclear experts say its safe to go, & these jockeys try over-rule them with their 'limited intellect', they set themselves up for ridicule from people like us.

During the 1950's the US governments would detonate nuclear explosions in the Nevada desert, then have their soldiers run toward the blasts... The British government did the same, but had the brilliant idea to use Canadians in Canada for their testing...

Although the US government does not admit it, the Canadian government have only recently agreed to pay their soldiers, those that are still alive, over $76,000 for their cancer...

I would bet, there are umbrella girls, crew members and other people employed by the racing teams that are thanking their lucky stars that they don't have to go to Motegi because of the decisions the pilots have made...

Grave yards are filled with many, that felt they had to prove their manhood and bravery for foolish reasons... Racing would be one of the most foolish of all...

@ Westminister

Lets try compare apples with apples here.

You've been going on about everything from Pacific Tests & Nevada Deserts, to Gulf War Syndrome.

It's like trying to compare the crippling ash clouds from the volcanoes with flicking some ash off a cigarette.

We're not taking about a nuclear testing or disaster zone here, we're talking about a race track in an area inhabited by millions of people going about their daily lives the same as you & me, that has been declared safe by a bunch of people with 150+ IQ's.

No wonder US Americans are so dumb and over powered academically by the rest of the world even in their own Universities. Please try getting an education.

what makes people smart is knowledge, experience & wisdom

when a bunch of highly qualified nuclear physicists with years of experience & a truckload of testing equipment say it's safe to live, work & race there, then you can take their word & call yourself smart for doing so

or you can listen to a few short men that never even finished school & ride bikes really fast as they over-rule the scientists, think they are right, & all the scientists & smart people will just laugh at you.

I agree that they should listen to the experts and they look somewhat silly for not doing so. However I think it is unfair that journalists are making it out like Jorge and Stoner are leading this when Rossi was the main guy that got all of this started in the first place.

Do these riders not realize how much radiation they are getting from all of these long airline flights (increased exposure to cosmic radiation) and x-rays?
