For the competition’s sixth edition, BMW has announced that the 2018 GS Trophy will be taking place in Mongolia. An excellent venue for this challenging event, the rough road to attending will as usual begin with regional qualifying rounds to see who can best ride, lift, shove, wrestle and pick up a BMW GS. While the odds of doing a little damage to your own GS while practicing and qualifying may be high once you are one of the selected few BMW will provide a shiny new GS to tackle the wilds of Mongolia. So far 16 national teams have been announced including Canada. As with the 2016 edition, there will be an all women team made up of qualifiers from around the world. Women will also be able to compete with the men to be part of national teams. Our fearless contributor Bertrand Gahel was the press rider for Team Canada when the GS Trophy was held in the wilds of British Columbia back in 2014.
