American Jason Sager won stage 2 of the Trans Andes Challenge on Tuesday. Sager battled stage 1 winner Stefan Sahm for the win although Sahm remains in the overall race lead.

Stage 2 was the shortest stage of the six-day event, but was not the easiest. Over 50km, riders had plenty of climbing and descending, over 2300m worth.

Sager crossed the line in 3:09:30, just one second ahead of Sahm. Chilean Javier Püschel and Argentinian Luciano Caraccioli won the men's duo category in 3:12:50. Husband and wife duo Mary McConneloug and Michael Broderick took top honors in the mixed duo category, finishing in 4:04:33.

On Wednesday, stage 3 will take riders from the Huilo Huilo Reserve to the Coñaripe Thermal Complex. It will be another demanding day with 78km of racing and 2500m of climbing in what may be the most challenging stage of the race. It's also one of the most beautiful stages with sections through native forest and along the Caucau River.
