Püschel makes it two in a row at Trans Andes Challenge

McConneloug and Broderick continue winning ways

Javier Püschel won stage 3 of the Trans Andes Challenge, making it two stage victories in a row for the local Chilean rider, who crossed the line in 2:54:35. Portugal's Joao Marinho was second and continues to lead the general classification while another Portuguese rider Tiago Silva was third.

Americans Mary McConneloug and Michael Broderick continued their winning ways in the mixed duo category. Team Nativo Concept with Matthew Hadley and Benoit Simard from Canadá was the strongest in the men's duo category today.

Stage 3 took riders from Coñaripe to Menetúe Hot Springs in southern Chile. It covered 74km over a volcanic pass in the Villarrica National Park. Riders could appreciated the majestic Villarrica Volcanoe and the beauty of the Araucarias Pine forest en route.

The stage was not a technically demanding one, but was characterized by a long and smooth climb up to the entrance of the Villarrica National Park. What followed was a long and fast descent down into the Trancura Valley, with its thermals and the day's finish line.

With the conclusion of the stage, the race is at its halfway point. Stage 4 on Thursday will take riders 83km to a lake in the middle of the Andes Mountains close to the Argentinean border. It will be the longest stage of the Trans Andes.
