2014 BMW GS Trophy: Off-Road OlympicsEvery two years (since 2008) BMW holds a competition to see which GS rider is the best in the world. In 2014 that contest is coming to North America for the first time. In September, teams from all over the world will descend on western Canada to vie for the top spot. Though the GS Trophy is primarily a riding competition, not all of the individual challenges will involve the motorcycles directly. Previously, the events held in Tunisia (2008), South Africa/Swaziland/Mozambique (2010), and Chile/Argentina (2012) all featured the F 800 GS. This time, however, the teams will be on the R 1200 GS. The ride will cross the Rocky Mountains between Vancouver and Calgary giving participants the chance to face some extremely tough terrain. Check out the video below for an idea of what’s in store for the 2014 edition.
