Absolutely. Zanol would be representing Brazil. Replace a Brazilian with an Argentinian?!? No way!!! There's as much rivalry as possible, Brazil being the bigger market (by a factor of 5 - in terms of population alone).

I have scanned the web and twitter in Portuguese also but can't find no more news on Zanol, quite worrying indeed :(

Despres published a nice video with just his highlihted roadbook of one of the Morocco rally stages - besides riding, the guy can paint lots of notes, scriblling and so on - quite interesting for the fanatics like ourselves (sorry for the off topic): http://i2.ytimg.com/vi/WV8OUe1rTHI/hqdefault.jpg
