At the end of stage 5 of the Trans Andes Challenge, the overall classifications for each of the categories are pretty much determined. Belgian Jan Dams won the day's stage - he arrived with the lead group containing most of the favorites.

The 78km stage with a variety of terrain seemed to be most racers' favorite. It all started with a neutralized start from Menetúe Thermal Complex and went on to the town of Curarrehue. A climb took racers up to a mountainous lake surrounded by Araucaria forests. A descent then led to an unstable, high suspension bridge across a river.

In the overall, German Stefan Sahm still comfortably leads the solo men's category. He and runner-up Jason Sager of the US were part of the lead finish group.

In contrast, there was a shake-up to standings in the duo men's category. Chilean Javier Püschel and Argentinean Luciano Caracciolli had some major technical problems and lost the lead place in their category. Chileans Saul Novoa and Hans Tapia stepped up into the lead for that category.

In the duo mixed category, Americans Mary McConneloug and Michael Broderick continue to lead.

The sixth and final 55km stage will take place between Menetúe Thermal Complex and the town of Pucon.
