2012 BMW GS Trophy | Video Highlights

BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Video Review

The third edition of the BMW GS Trophy wrapped up Sunday at the Trailanqui Resort in Chile following nearly 2000 kilometers over seven days of riding through the Patagonian mountain regions of Chile and Argentina.

And once the 2012 event was complete, Team Germany was victorious, bringing the trophy home for the Bavarian manufacturer and its famed model of the event, the BMW F800GS. Team Germany finished 18 points ahead of Team France, and 34 points ahead of Team Italy.

Heiner Faust (BMW Motorrad head of sales and marketing) says: “The GS Trophy is a big part of the culture of our company, for our GS customers, our GS community and GS friends. And so it’s been amazing to see these people riding through these amazing countries, over the rough trails, through the rainforests and the amazing scenery – and most importantly having fun together. This means a lot for us.”

Tomm Wolf (BMW GS Trophy co-organizer) says: “It was unbelievable, after the huge pressure and four months of hard work on location, it’s great to have seen the group ride through our event, it´s unbelievable. When I came here I didn’t think it was possible to put on an event as good as this, but now it’s over and all the riders – except Marc-André Octeau who was injured on day three – have come back safely. That is an achievement.”
