Having placed second here at home in 2010 as well as in Canada 2014, South Africa has won the last three International GS Trophies – New Zealand 2020, Mongolia 2018 and Thailand 2016. These triumphs have firmly established that South Africa has some of the best GS riders in the world.
If you’re passionate about adventure, new experiences and sharing how to #MakeLifeARide, then the GS Trophy Regional Qualifiers are where you need to be; because BMW Motorrad South Africa is looking for five riders to represent Team South Africa and the #SpiritofGS at the 2022 International GS Trophy to be held in Albania.
The regional qualifiers are one day events taking place between May and July 2021. Individual riders compete in each region with the top riders invited to the National Qualifier in September 2021.
