Spaniard Joan Llordella won the fifth stage of the Trans Andes Challenge which included 82km between the towns of Liquiñe to Menetúe. Javier Püschel from Chile and Matthias Grick from Austria, finished second and third respectively.

The race started with 25 km of road to Coñaripe, and then continued with a 20km climb to access the Villarrica National Park. Then they faced a rapid descent to Palguín. The stage ended with 5km of paved road to the camp in Catripulli in the Termas de Menetúe.

Llordella won in a time of 3:06:08, just one second ahead of Püschel, who remained in first place overall. Grick from Austria arrived third, followed by Orlando Alves of Brazil.

The women's open winner was Rebecca Rusch, who finished ahead of Sonya Looney. Pau Zamora and Antonio Ortiz topped the mixed category ahead of Matthew Hadley and Benoit Simard.
