MotoGP riders peak ahead of Motegi round

“After what happened in March, it feels like a dream to be here racing this weekend,” he said. “First I would like to thank Honda and all my sponsors for this opportunity. This weekend I will do my best and I can represent and give some hope to all those who have been, and still are, suffering from the tragedy that happened back in March. This track is one of my favourites so I'll try my best but also make sure I don't get in the way of the regular riders.”

Countryman Kousuke Akiyoshi will also ride as a wild-card for the LCR Honda team, alongside Toni Elias, while Australia Damian Cudlin is replacing the injured Loris Capirossi at Pramac Ducati.

The Japanese MotoGP was due to take place in April, but was rescheduled following the massive earthquake and tsunami that struck the country in March.

Not sure where stoner was flying from but if it was Melbourne or sydney then all flights were in chaos due to weather. Doesn't matter. What matters is where he is at the end of the race. Go Cudlin!!!!
