Moto Sasaki has not quit Suelo for KHE!

Had message from Viki Gomez today to say that Moto Sasaki has not quit Suelo for KHE, and will be riding for Suelo this year, not quite sure what has happened here, first I heard of it was general gossip online, then the news broke Adam Kun's facebook, then Global flat, assumed this to be true, rather strange. can't recall a sponsor being announced then declined before, sure there is one. My apologises for posting on flatmatters to Moto and Suelo.

Very strange, wonder what really went down with this deal. Suelo come back with improved offer?

Glad you don't work for CBS! Heh. If I were Suelo, I would want to keep Moto for sure!

Statement for Thomas Goring:

We were also real surprised after we got this strange email. It’s written & signed with Moto signature but if you read it it sounds more that someone else wrote it for him.

When I read this strange mail then it sounds like Moto never got in contact with us what is 100% not true.
Moto informed three times Fun Fancy, our distributor in Japan that he likes to ride for KHE. Everything was ready for him. We checked all details including payment, travel budget, bike line & signature frame.
We even got a part order for Moto what inc. the new A-Damn frame (before his own signature frame will be done), some parts AND gloves what shows the order comes from Moto J

We think that the distributor who sponsors Moto put him under pressure to hold him. Now we don’t have more info from Moto and we are looking forward to know more.
This all is a strange game and really not ok to work with riders this way. We as KHE also got & lost many riders in our 20 years history but we never did anything against a rider to hold him.

Anyway we like to say that Moto is always welcome in our team & if he needs our help in any way to get out of this situation we & our distributor will support him!
All the best Moto…all from KHEbikes
