"We'll get the results on July 24, with a review of the results at 31, to confirm whether radiation levels in there to cause problems or not. This is the situation, we agree with the FIM and the people Motegi, and it all depends on the outcome of this , whether we go or not. "

Ezpeleta also said that the continuation of the race at Motegi, it depends on the teams of contestants, instead of Dorna. It is they who will decide whether the rider may go to Japan.

"This is a problem, but it's not my problem," he added. "We have an agreement with Motegi to make the race can be done. If the number of teams have an agreement with the rider, then it's up to them to decide whether to go to Japan or not. We do not consider it. If the good results of the investigation, then the race will be done .
