Chilean riders Martín Flaño and Nicolás Prudencio won the second annual  six-stage Trans Andes Challenge, which finished this weekend after crossing the Patagoinan Andes from Chile into Argentina.

The men’s team bested the coed team of Americans Mary McConneloug and Michael Broderick by 47 minutes and 31 seconds in a race that featured heat, cold, rain, river crossings and, of course, tens of thousands of feet of elevation gain.

McConneloug and Broderick won the mixed division, coming in ahead of the Swiss team made up of XTERRA pro Renata Bucher and Simon Zahnd.

Prior to the Trans Andes Challenge, teammates Rebecca Rusch, three-time reigning 24-Hour Solo MTB World Champion and Leadville Trail 100 winner; and Jenny Smith, an XTERRA pro and seven-time New Zealand mountain bike team member said they were using the event to train for the upcoming season. They finished in the top-ten.

The team of Tom Ritchey and Pedro Marzolo finished 4:42:54 behind Flaño and Nicolás Prudencio in the Men’s Open division.
