2015 Trans Andes Challenge

Chris Carmichael, endurance champion Rebecca Rusch, and a team of nearly 20 CTS Athletes and Coaches traveled to Patagonia, Chile in January 2012 to compete in the Trans Andes Challenge. They came back forever changed! You have to experience this amazing part of the world, and there's no better way than with a week-long stage race through some of the most beautiful terrain in the world. For 2015, we're going back for a fourth year, and if you come with us you'll benefit from bi-lingual guides and mechanics, comprehensive race support, and having all your meals and ground transportation taken care of.
