Poll: Should MotoGP go to Japan?

You tell us: MotoGP at Japan in 2011 - Yes or No?
Leading MotoGP riders are yet to confirm their attendance at the Japanese MotoGP on October 2, due to radiation fears from the damaged Fukushima nuclear power plant, located around 110km from the Motegi circuit.

Those riders - in particular Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner and Valentino Rossi, plus other paddock members and riders from the Moto2 and 125cc classes - appear unconvinced by the findings of an independent report.

The report concluded that "based on the estimate dose it can be said with no doubt that the radiation risk during the race event is negligible".

All things considered - including the massive support the Japanese manufacturers have given to MotoGP - we want you to give us a straight 'yes' or 'no' answer:

@ leon the difference is that they are in control of their bikes and choose to ride at 300 kph. They have no contol over radiation particles they may breath in, no control of earthquakes, tsnamis or nuclear power plants. I wouldn't go so I don't expect any of them should either. This is serious stuff that could affect them for the rest of their lives, a motogp race is just for fun.

I would choose a quick death on a motorcycle then a slow death due to radiation poisoning any day of the week. At least when riding, they are somewhat in control of their own fate.
