Adventure dream-destination for BMW Motorrad GS Trophy 2018
BMW announced the next GS Trophy destination. The 2018 edition takes place in Mongolia in early summer of 2018 and anyone can participate by signing up at the regional qualifiers set to take place this year.
After North and South Africa, South and North America and Southeast Asia, the sixth BMW GS Trophy is set to take place in Mongolia – an adventure dream destination for any rider.
The competition is open to all non-professional BMW riders. GS Trophy tests riders on their riding, adventure, teamwork skills while and handling of the BMW GS motorcycle is at the core of the skill set.
The regional qualifiers held throughout 2017 typically replicate the challenges of the International GS Trophy and are often two or multi-day competitions with riders scoring points, leading to a final where the top scorers will compete for the three team positions.
Those lucky – talented – three will then be fully equipped by BMW Motorrad for the adventure ahead, flown to Mongolia and each presented with a brand new personalised BMW GS motorcycle to ride for the duration of the event.
International GS Trophy Female Team gets new selection process
Following a successful introduction in 2016, women will again compete in Mongolia. GS riding women from all over the world will now qualify for the final through a new procedure.
They can qualify for their national team at the regional qualifiers, competing like-for-like with the men. Furthermore, the best two women in each regional qualifier (who have not reached the top three overall anyway) will move forward to an International GS Trophy Female Qualifier where, as before, the best of the best will be selected for the International GS Trophy Female Team.
