International GS Trophy 2022 Qualifier

South Africa

Having won the last three International GS Trophies - New Zealand 2020, Mongolia 2018 and Thailand 2016 – as well as placing second at Canada 2014 and here at home in 2010, there’s no disputing that South Africa has the best GS riders in the world.  

Now, having built a reputation as the team to beat, you’re invited to make history and add to our legacy at International GS Trophy 2022 in Albania.  

If you’re passionate about seeking new experiences, exploring new territories and sharing how you #MakeLifeARide – then we want you! 

That’s right, we’re looking for five riders to represent Team South Africa and the #SpiritofGS. 

Regional Qualifiers

The regional qualifiers are one day events taking place between May and July 2021.

Individual riders compete in each region with the top riders invited to the National Qualifier in September 2021.

This year we’ll select a women’s team as well, with the top women from each regional qualifier invited to compete at the National Qualifier.
