German Stefan Sahm won the final general classification of the Trans Andes Challenge when the last stage finished in the town of Pucon. The sixth and final stage took racers over 55km and connected the Menetúe Thermal Complex with Pucón. The course went along the slopes of the Villarrica Volcano, where participants raced through native forest and over cinders. A soft rain fell throughout the stage.

Belgian Jan Dams won the final stage, his second of the event, with a time of 2:16:07. Dams crossed the line in a group including American Jason Sager, Sahm, Carsten Bresser and Udo Bolts. Sahm's GC final winning time was 20:35:31.

Chileans Hans Tapia and Saul Novoa took the duo men's category. Both are originally from the town of Pucon.

Americans Mary McConneloug and Michael Broderick took the duo mixed category after winning all six of the stages en route - making for a perfect race.

192 racers from 24 countries participated. Organizers announced that the next event will happen starting on January 21, 2013.
