The GS Trophy regionals are one of the highlights at the annual BMW GS Trophy SA event.

Each region is represented by three riders who compete in a series of skill challenges.  The team takes part at the GS Trophy 2018 in Montagu (9-13 May 2018) for prizes and most of all bragging rights for a year. smiley

The first step in this journey is to participate in the regional qualifier.  Country Trax (an official off road training partner of BMW Motorrad) and Donford Motorrad Stellenbosch will host the regional qualifier on 17/02/2018 at Donford Motorrad Stellenbosch. 

The course is designed to minimize damage to your motorcycle and risk of injury to rider.  The exercises are based on the intermediate off road riders ability.

We encourage ladies to participate in this event, too. The Ladies will be scored separately.

The entry fee will be R950 per participant.  Bookings are now open.  20 entries can be accommodated...already 14 entrants...its going to be fun...

Spectators are welcome to come join and support the riders and get a taste of what the GS Trophy is all about.  Please diarise!! no charge!!

We will have motorcycle related & food stalls on the day.

More details to follow soon!!!  Watch this space.

In the meantime get on your GS's and up your skills.  The training team can assist  on 28 Jan 2018 for a couple of hours.

For any further details contact John Carr on 021 888 4200

We have already received 18 entries for the Western Cape qualifier.  Due to time and space constraints we can only accommodate 20 entrants,  so there are only a couple of spots left.  Book online if you would like to participate:

Some of the contestants had a very vibey training day yesterday.  They all excited and on the roll.  They braved the heat to sharpen up their skills. Thank you to John Carr who assisted them instead of taking on a group of Lev 2's.  

The W/Cape have indeed strong entries to cross swords with...please come and support the guys and girls while they will be showing their skills and steel.

It, for sure, going to be an intense and fun day.

Show the cameraderie!!!  yes
