You are of course right Phil.
It is NOT Steyr's obligation to supply the top prize.
They have supported World FT admirably over the years but unfortunately, this year, with the Olympics in London the guys just couldn't get to Norway with their service truck in time.
Maybe, as previously suggested, other "majors" could have been approached or were we all thinking that good old Steyr will come up with the goods.
