With the antecedents that we handle, we can anticipate some names of those who look for the champion trophy of Transandes Challenge Tenth Edition.
But we can have surprises, actually we always have surprises. The final result depends on many factors, especially in these stages competitions. There will be some riders that will surprise us with an unexpected performance. But, with full responsibility, we can anticipate that the Chilean Eyair Astudillo and the Austrian Matthias Grick are the favorites to take the title this year. The local Team Specialized rider already knows how to win the Transandes Challenge, while the European (Team KTM ), has a vast experience in epic competitions.
For his part, the experienced spaniard Marc Trayter also comes to demonstrate his skills. The also Chilean Pedro Santos, the Argentines Miguel Angel Hidalgo and Felipe Sundblad will also be there, giving the best to reach the best positions!
In teams, we consider that the Argentines Pablo Funaro and Ezequiel Cuevas, and the locals José Pablo Ramírez and Benjamín Moya will be in the fight … in this category there may be surprises, it may be the Andorran duo, maybe the Icelanders, the Colombians … we will see it in Huilo Huilo!
The women will have their own battle, without a doubt the favorites are the North Americans Sonya Looney and Kaysee Armstrong, both already have titles in the Transandes Challenge and they come for more! But do not rule out the chilean Catalina Catalina Salata and Filomena Gomes (Portugal), two competitors with a lot of potential to contest the podium this 2018.
Soon we will see them in action, the Transandes Challenge 2018 will be a test full of emotions, we will have the best Mountainbike in the World between January 17 – 21.
