BMW looking for three riders to compete in the GS Trophy

Published: 25 March 2014

BMW is inviting British riders to compete for three places in Team UK for the 2014 GS Trophy final in Canada.

The UK qualifier will be held over the Bank Holiday weekend May 25-26 and takes place in South Wales at BMW’s Off-Road Skills School.

Riders will compete in navigation challenges on a road loop on their own bike, while all off-road sections will be on BMW’s own motorcycles.

BMW state: “The qualifying event is suitable for riders of all abilities and levels, will involve a host of fun and enjoyable on- and off-road riding challenges, as well as practical and navigation tests on the stunning roads around the region”.

Three riders will be chosen by Dakar race legend Simon Pavey to represent the UK in the final against teams from over 15 nations, with the lucky trio being flown out to Canada for an all-expenses paid ten-day riding adventure.

BMW Off-Road Skills is holding a special one-day refresher course for GS Trophy entrants looking for extra practice on May 24 priced at £249. Riders will get to practice on a motorcycle of their choice, as well as get advice from instructors.

Additionally, customers can book one of the last remaining places on the two-day BMW off Road Skills courses ahead of the event to brush up on their skills and techniques.
