Context means everything. The people that pay to go see MotoGP (like me) pay for the main event. It's not to say the support events aren't good, but the money is spent to see the best of the best on exotic machinery. I also like SBK and AMA racing because as you said, I appreciate the skill. But to relate back to trials, I would pay to watch Toni Bou and Adam Raga do things I can't do. If I want to watch skilled guys ride bikes I have access to I go to local events and pay an entry fee and ride in the morning and check in the afternoon.
