It’s official!! BMW announces Canada to host the GS Trophy 2014 world event

We’ve just received confirmation from BMW Motorrad Canada that the 2014 BMW International GS Trophy will be held in Canada in September.

This will be the first time the event takes place in the Northern Hemisphere, and some 18 nations will be represented by teams from around the world.

Previous events have been held in Africa and South America.  The 2014 edition will take place starting in Vancouver, B.C. crossing the Rocky Mountains and finishing in Calgary, Ab.  The event will run for nine days and organizers say competitors will be riding the new liquid-cooled R1200GS so that BMW can showcase the big adventure-tourers capabilities.

This is exciting news for adventure-travel enthusiasts.  Riders from all over the world have ‘qualified’ in GS Challenge competitions in their respective countries to be selected for their national teams.

We’ll report on more details as soon as we get them.
