I guess Oscar even painted some of his custom bikes with half Brazilian/ half Argentinian graphics.

Just have a question, why is it that Galindez has Arg/Bra? He is from Cordoba Argentina. I noticed that Triathlete Mag made this mistake also last year where they said Brasil and not Argentina. He lives in Brasil but is from and races for Argentina.
