GS Trophy 2020 – Qualifier USA participants must be registered owners of the BMW Motorrad GS or HP2 Enduro model motorcycles on which they will compete. Riders representing Team USA will be identified on or before September 15, 2019 and will go on to compete in the BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy 2020 in New Zealand. 

BMW Motorrad has hosted the biennial International GS Trophy for adventure-thirsty riders since 2008. The event has taken participants to Tunisia, South Africa, Patagonia, Canada, Thailand – and, most recently, Mongolia for a week of hard-core adventure riding, special tests and teamwork challenges. Five teams crossed the starting line in the first GS Trophy. Last year’s event saw 19 teams from 25 nations taking part. In 2016, the first-ever women's team joined in, and women riders have been competing ever since.
