Messrs Justin and Richard Woods, totally agree with you both....
To me it's not about the prize but the kudos. Anyone can go out and buy a Steyr or a Ripley or whatever, thats easy, BUT they have to EARN the title, the right to be called world champ, the right to have THEIR name on the trophy. That cannot be bought!
