Caraccioli and PĆ¼schel win stage 4

McConneloug and Broderick fastest in mixed duo category

Luciano Caraccioli and Javier Püschel won stage 4 of the Trans Andes Challenge. The stage took racers from Coñaripe to Menetúe Thermal Complex and included passage through the Villarrica National Park where there is an Araucaria Pine forest.

Stage 4 proved to be the shortest time-wise since these lands have been developed for easy movement with long climbs and fast descents.

As usual, the start took place at 9:30 am from the campsite in Coñaripe Thermal Complex. The race moved towards the village of Coñaripe and then ascended to the Villarrica National Park, a place where there is an old and worn route through the ancient Araucaria pines forest near the Villarrica Volcano.

The winning team of Püschel and Caraccioli set a time of 3:13:58, while the second and third place overall was for Jason Sager from United States and Stefan Sahm from Germany. Once again the winners of the mixed open team category were the Americans Mary McConneloug and Michael Broderick, with a time of 3:41:42.

The fifth stage will take place on Friday, with start and finish at Coñaripe Thermal Complex. It promises to be the queen stage of race.
