INTERNATIONAL: GS TROPHY REPORT

UK WINS, SA SECOND

The BMW GS Trophy 2010 is all over. With an arduous final day and with the points totalled, the overall winners were Team UK – narrowly beating the South African MIP Constructioneers by a mere one point. The South Africans had to settle for a disappointing second place overall, with Team Nordic/Scandinavia in third place.

The final day included a trials special test based around the Country Trax farm using BMW R1200GS motorcycles. This was followed by a 300km long journey back to Johannesburg where the results of the recent photo competition were announced. It was a warm, sunny day with temperatures well over 20º C (68º F). The trials were carried out across the seesaw, over gnarly tree trunks and around different obstacles that forced the steering from stop to stop. Team South Africa got a convincing victory here while Team Nordic team took second and Team UK third. This turned the points table on its head because Team South Africa went ahead to take a one point lead in the overall standings coming into the final competition.

The photo competition was a huge success. In this third and final round over 10,000 votes were cast. The winner was Team Canada with almost a third of all votes. But Team UK was lucky and got the second-most votes and, also important for the Brits, Team Nordic placed third ahead of Team South Africa. This gave Team UK a total of 152 to 151 points for Team South African. And only two points behind them was Team Nordic to finish third. After seven days of competitions, the first three teams were only separated by three points!

“What can I say? Job done!” Said Alastair Allan of Team UK. “Great feeling, a lot of fun. Like a good friend of mine says: Even if there is only one decisive point – a win is a win. And that’s it. This was a fantastic week. We were a great team and were good friends. So it was a great event for us. I thought we could achieve a win because we got along so well together as a team.”
 

Special Test Results:

Trials: 1st Team South Africa, 2nd Team Nordic, 3rd Team UK
Photo Competition: 1st Team Canada, 2nd Team UK, 3rd Team Nordic
 
TEAM IMPRESSIONS:

TEAM NORDIC: Börres Skiaker: “Every day, every minute was awesome. My colleagues and I from the Nordic team have loved the trip, the competition, and enjoyed meeting with other people. It was great!”

TEAM ITALY: Marco De Muri: “For us the best moment was on day four when we reached a village in the mountains (the second photo contest, we submitted a picture of it). Because of a special test we had stopped there, which gave us the opportunity to get to know the children of the village. They had nothing but their smiles. They were great.”


Shigechika Aikawa from Japan injured his foot on the fourth day, but thanks to great sportsmanship and medical assistance, he was able to finish the event.
TEAM USA: Shannon Markle: “The best thing was to hang out with my buddy Iain Glynn. We had never met before the GS Challenge, but after this we feel we’ll be soul mates. Here I had my first real experiences with people of many nationalities — it was great to see how excited the Spaniards and the Italians were and how they did everything at full speed! And towards the end, we understood that it’s not about who was going first, second or third — because everyone was already a winner because they were there.”

TEAM JAPAN: Shigechika Aikawa & Tohru Tamiya: “For us the highlight was how much the other teams and the BMW staff helped us. If team South Africa and Team Germany had not helped us on the third and fourth day, then we could not have ridden along until the end. In addition on the third day we got into deep sand causing the shift lever of Shigechika’s motorcycle to break and the mechanics repaired it overnight. On the fourth day he crashed and injured his foot. Without the help of paramedics, he would not have been able to continue.”

TEAM CANADA: Dominique Lemaire: “I think this is the culmination of a series of events. I came here to have fun and I had it too. I would like to see the next one but at the same time I’m glad it’s over and I have safely reached its destination. We have seen a bit of everything. When we leave here, we have an idea of what is South Africa. We were in places that I would never have seen otherwise. That was really something special.”

TEAM UK: Kevin Hammond: “This morning we said: What comes, will come. We believe that we are all winners. It was a great trip. It was absolutely fantastic. For me, the most beautiful moment was when we arrived at Ponta do Ouro to round a corner and saw the Indian Ocean before us. It was my 50th birthday, we had plowed through the sand with our bikes and then sat there with a cold beer.”

TEAM ALPS: Johannes de Cuitiis: “The whole week was great. Winning is not the main thing, but new experiences and helping each other. But then yesterday we reached this great place — a victory. This has pushed us forward: It is possible… We can win!”

TEAM SPAIN: David Borcha Mateo: “We have a team that feels comfortable. We came here to do something with riders together from all over the world. And everything was perfect. We have experienced a lot, we had good roads and trails, and we had accidents (which is inevitable at times!). We also had good food and felt good. Spaniards are always laughing, having fun, and making friends. We look forward to many things — a pity that our attempts were not so good for a better result. But we are happy and satisfied. The marshals, the organization — everything was more than perfect.”

TEAM GERMANY: Dirk Remmel: “Probably the funniest was the towing test. There was a lot of adrenaline in that game. I remember that I wanted to make quite a lot of speed and then cows blocked the road. I only heard (Werner) shout loudly! I thought if only the cow would move away from there, we would have enough room. And at the last moment she actually moved away! This week we have experienced so much that I cannot even remember it all. I also cannot wait to get home and go online to find out everything that we did!”

TEAM SOUTH AFRICA: Roger Kane Berman: “The ride through the sand with the Japanese was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. But they were so grateful, and so it was worth it. We had to struggle with the language and different cultures.”
Tomm Wolf, Co-organizer of the GS Trophy: “All were healthy and smiling when they came to the finish. I am very satisfied. For me the middle of the week was the hardest, namely the border into Mozambique and the drive to the Indian Ocean. I was so glad when we got there. Now we look to 2012. People ask whether we still can do better. I think that’s possible. Can you imagine: Breakfast in Machu Pichu or canoeing on Lake Titicaca? I am convinced that we will find nice places.”
