Destination Adventure 2018:
The BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy Central Asia takes place in Mongolia!

Imagem

Registration now open for qualifying events in 2017.


The path to the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2018 is now set: all tracks lead to Mongolia as the latest edition, ‘Central Asia’, is set to take place in the early summer of 2018. Anyone – man or woman – keen to win a place in this prestigious adventure motorcycle competition should sign up now as the regional qualifiers are set to take place throughout 2017.

After North and South Africa, South then North America and Southeast Asia, the sixth BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy is set to take place in Mongolia. For some time a dream destination for adventure motorcycle riders, the country offers spectacular scenery and fantastic riding challenges set in a vast land that’s known for climatic extremes, populated (sparsely) by an often nomadic people born to living in an unforgiving environment.

Adventure awaits – register now!
The BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy is open to all non-professional BMW riders. The competition tests riders on their riding, adventure and teamwork skills while confident 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.

Confirmed teams for 2018:
Argentina
Australia
Canada
China
France
Germany
Japan
Latin America
Mexico

QUALIFIERS
The first step on your way to adventure.

Show us what you've got! If you want to take part in the off-road adventure, you will have to demonstrate your riding skills beforehand in a national qualifier. The two-day qualifiers are open to all riders; you don't have to have a certain amount of previous riding experience. You can participate if you are an amateur rider and have your own BMW motorcycle. The challenge is all about enjoying yourself.

You will also have to master difficult routines on and off-road, work as a team and complete a navigation test. Basic technical knowledge is also a must. You will complete the challenges with your own BMW; for the final test, BMW Motorrad will provide you with a GS. Should you qualify for the 2018 International GS Trophy and belong to a national team of three riders, BMW Motorrad will kit you out with a GS and clothing, among other things, for the duration of the competition.

International Female Team Qualifier.
irl power burns within you. You are in your element when you can kick up the dust on your GS. You love the two-wheeled challenge, and don't want to leave the field of the International GS Trophy to the men? Then it's time for a thrilling motorcycle adventure in Mongolia. Be part of the team and inspire GS fans around the world.

PEOPLE & PLACES
SEVEN REASONS WHY YOU HAVE TO TAKE YOUR GS TO MONGOLIA.


Imagem

REASON 1: GRAVEL ROADS ARE YOUR TERRAIN.
The wind in your face, the dust beneath your feet: Mongolia is a truly awesome setting for a great adventure on your GS. A combination of deserts and steppes makes the country unique. Gravel and dirt tracks will really challenge you. You'll have to cross rivers and tackle many a high mountain range on your bike. Take your machine over grasslands, get yourself out of muddy ruts. Total concentration is required every second. A pure offroad experience.

REASON 2: YOU'LL REALLY COVER GROUND.
Imagine riding your motorcycle to the farthest corner of the earth: You'll cross paths with wolves, wildcats and wild horses that interrupt the solitude. Buzzards and steppe eagles circle in the sky. Wild beauty in a vast country, bordered by Russia in the north and by China in the south. Mongolia is one of the most sparsely populated countries on earth. A world of wide open spaces. The perfect territory for GS riders.

REASON 3: YOU'LL EXPERIENCE MAGICAL MOMENTS.
In the south of Mongolia, the vegetation becomes more sparse as the Gobi desert, the sixth largest on the planet, appears before you. All your riding skills are required here as your GS takes on sand and gravel. With a little luck, you'll see a mirage on hot summer days. Statistically, Mongolia has 260 sunny days a year. Magical Moments in Mongolia. Colourful rock formations and natural light effects constantly transform the landscape that you'll explore on your motorcycle.

REASON 4: MONGOLIANS ARE MOTORCYCLISTS.
You won't be alone on your motorcycle in Mongolia. Horses and horsepower are equally important to the Mongolians. Russian replicas of old BMWs abound; horse carriages are often used as taxis. If you want to give your bike a little break, you can take a sidecar ride for even more adventure. Motorcycles are always breaking down on the country's bumpy roads. But the Mongolians are masters of improvisation. They always find solutions and bring old bikes back to life. In the country, solo bikes are usually used for a different purpose: herding sheep.

REASON 5: YOU'LL LOVE THE HOSPITALITY.
On your GS adventure, you'll meet nomads who have lived modestly and simply for generations. A fire inside the yurt keeps the water hot during the day. If you visit the hospitable inhabitants of the steppes, they will welcome you with a cup of tea and pass you the snuffbox. Or they'll give you fermented mare's milk – the refreshing, fizzy and slightly sour national drink of Mongolia.

REASON 6: YOU'RE AN EXPLORER.
As a GS rider, you're always in explorer mode: Follow the footsteps of Genghis Khan on your motorcycle. Many places and stories commemorate him. The international airport is named after him. Even centuries after his death, every child tells tales about him. Genghis Khan united the Mongol tribes into a great empire at the end of the twelfth century. At the beginning of the 13th century, he conquered vast parts of Central Asia and North China with his cavalry of horsemen. A monumental equestrian statue commemorates him fifty kilometres from the capital. A perfect place for a pit-stop.

REASON 7: YOU LOVE CONTRASTS.
Night and day: Temperature differences of more than 30 degrees Celsius between day and night will challenge you and your machine. You'll have to pack warm clothes, even during the summer.
Urban and rural: With almost 1.5 million inhabitants, the capital Ulan Bator is home to about half of the country's population. The other half are natives of the steppes. They live with and from their animals in humble dwellings and usually maintain the traditions of their nomadic ancestors.
Traditional and modern: Buddha, Genghis Khan and nomadism are the traditions of the Mongolians, a people with a growing thirst for education. TV, affluence and globalization are giving rise to material desires in a country that still uses traditional Mongolian writing, a place where many speak Russian as a second language.
