I've never been a Rossi fan, in the sense of cheering on him (I was always cheering for the Suzuki team, so it'd have been impossible), but his attitude is impressive. After the lull in recent years,...

That's a separate issue from what I'm saying. I'm talking about interest. If a venue is at capacity for a race, it indicates lots of interest, whereas if it's at less than 30% it indicates the lack...
