Regional GS Trophy Qualifier

GS Trophy Logo

To participate in the skills challenges at GS Trophy South Africa 2018, you have to be selected for either a regional team or for one of the ladies' teams. Regional and ladies' teams will be picked at regional qualifier events. The three best riders from each region will be picked to represent their regions and the six best ladies from all regions will be picked for the two ladies teams.

Country TRAX will host the regional qualifier events on 17 February 2018 at various venues throughout the country. The regional qualifiers will consist of a series of exercises that test bike control, course management and the riders' ability to maintain focus. Exercises are based on the Intermediate off-road riding course.

The number of participants that can be accommodated in regional qualifiers is limited so prior booking is essential. Bookings for participants will close on 12 February.

You participate at your own risk, but we take great care to host regional qualifiers that are as safe as possible - for both rider and motorcycle. Participation in the regional qualifiers is the first step in a journey and we try to keep it accessible to many GS riders.

Spectators are welcome at all regional qualifiers. Come share in the fun and support the riders!
