Püschel and Rusch win Trans Andes overall

Saul Novoa of Pucón won the sixth and final stage of the Trans Andes in front of a home crowd on Saturday while Chilean Javier Püschel clinched the overall classification after finishing third in the final stage. Portuguese rider Joao Marinho was second overall.

Canadians Matthew Hadley and Benoit Simard (Team Nativo) were the top team, ahead of Nicolás Prudencio of Chile and Juan García of Argentina.

Mary McConneloug and Michael Broderick from the USA dominated each stage and the overall of the mixed competition, beating the Chilean team of Elisa Garcia and Claus Plaut.

American Rebecca Rusch has repeatedly showed her strength, beating the Spanish rider Mercé Petit for the solo women's overall victory.

The final day's stage starting and finishing in front of Pucón's City Hall was reduced in length to 33km due to the arduous climb en route. Participants had to grind over 1000 meters before reaching the Ski Center of Villarrica Volcano. From here, they headed down through technical trails back to the finish below.

Over six days and 420km, racers from 27 countries climbed 10,000m in the Southern Andes Mountains in Chilean Patagonia.

Next year's sixth annual Trans Andes Challenge will take place from January 20 - January 24, 2014.
