BMW Motorrad GS Trophy 2010 | Video

Highlights Video

Normally the BMW GS Trophy is held every two years at alternating locations. To mark the 30th anniversary of the BMW GS motorcycle, BMW held a special GS Trophy in South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique; undoubtedly one of the most fascinating areas in which to ride a BMW GS motorcycle.

Now, the 2010 BMW Motorrad GS Trophy has reached its conclusion and despite very strong final day challenges Team UK has emerged as the winner. The victory came over Team South Africa with Team Nordic third.

The final day involved a trials riding special test at the Country Trax estate (riding a BMW R 1200 GS), followed by a 300km return motorcycle journey to Johannesburg where the results of the final photo competition were later announced – all on a hot sunny day with temperatures in the high 20s (Celsius).

The motorcycle trial involved sections containing a seesaw, tree logs, and iron beams. Team South Africa convincingly won, while Team Nordic also outpointed Team UK for the runner-up.

This reversed the points table, putting Team South Africa in the lead by one point with just the photo competition results to be decided.
