The International GS Trophy 2024

Welcome to Namibia

The venue of the Int. GS Trophy 2024 has been announced: the off-road adventure will be taking us to Namibia. Now that the Int. GS Trophy has travelled around all continents throughout the globe, it returns to where it all began – Africa. Namibia impresses with beautiful landscapes, what are know as the big five and many other animal species. Hot days end with crimson sunsets. The night sky that follows is overwhelming and starry. The trip to Namibia will be a unique experience with a lot of #SpiritOfGS. We can hardly wait!

Once-in-a-lifetime experience

It goes without saying that the exact routes for the Int. GS Trophy 2024 are still top secret until the event itself kicks off. However, we can already promise you one thing: it will be an unforgettable experience where participants will be able to demonstrate their riding skills and expertise as part of ambitious challenges.

It’s all about skills and team spirit. In addition to plenty of sandy stints, the route will also take us up Namibia's mountains and therefore present us with some rocky stretches. Even for experienced Enduro riders, Namibia will be an once-in-a-lifetime adventure that will remain a lasting memory.

The countdown has started

There's still some time until the official launch of the Int. GS Trophy 2024. National and regional qualifiers will give us a taste for the real thing. There are 15 national and regional qualifiers worldwide, as well as an international qualifier, where experienced enduro riders will be able to show off their skills. Those riders managing to come out top in navigation exercises involving GPS, off-road riding or technical tests will secure a place in one of the 22 national teams. Ladies’ teams prevailing at national level will win a trip to the international ladies qualifier. A total of 6 ladies’ teams will be determined at this event and they will join the 16 men’s teams boarding the coveted flight to Namibia.

Marthinus van Rooyen

24-Year-old Marthinus from Gauteng works for a company specialised in industrial fridges. He’s been riding motorcycles for a long time – he even rode a bike to school. At some point, his thirst for adventure overcame him, and he took a trip to Lesotho. His tour guide gave him the idea to participate in the Int. GS Trophy.

Jean Pierre Boer

Jean Pierre is 27 years old and comes from Pretoria. The company founder comes from a motorcycling family, and has had an interest in bikes since childhood. At the age of 18, his mother gave him his first motorcycle so that he could run errands and get by in his day-to-day life with more flexibility. Soon after, Jean Pierre realised that he wanted to experience more of the world, and his tours became longer and longer. Not long after that, he bought his first R 1200 GS.

Ruhan De Villiers

Motorcycles have always been important to Ruhan, who works as a financial advisor in Western Cape Langebaan. The 48-year-old has always enjoyed off-road riding most of all, and he likes to ride motorbikes with his wife. So it’s no wonder that he’s been following the events of the Int. GS Trophy for some years now.

The destination of the Int. GS Trophy 2024 has been decided – but the exact routes are still secret. Nevertheless, you should still plan your trip to Windhoek now, because as soon as the Int.
