BMW Motorrad UK has announced the GS Trophy UK Qualifier – which will take place over the Bank Holiday weekend of May 25-26, 2014.

BMW Off Road Skills legend Simon Pavey and his team will be hosting an action-packed weekend of riding challenges, skills tests and off-road tasks in South Wales.

Once completed, three BMW owners will earn their places in the once-in-a-lifetime international final of the BMW Motorrad GS Trophy in Canada.

Initial qualifying will take place on Sunday, May 25, with a hog roast in the evening, during which the semi-finalists will be announced. Three winners will be chosen on Monday, May 26, with the team selected to go and compete in Canada in September.

BMW Off Road Skills will be holding an optional special one-day refresher course for GS Trophy entrants looking for some extra practice on Saturday, May 24, priced at £249.
