In a gripping weekend held in Putrajaya, BMW Motorrad Malaysia delivered an electrifying spectacle as the 2023 BMW Motorrad GS Challenge unfolded. This event, dedicated to pushing the limits of local GS motorcycle riders, witnessed the participation of over 180 enthusiastic riders, all vying for a coveted spot in the prestigious 2024 International GS Trophy Tour in Namibia.

Building upon the resounding success of the previous year, the BMW Motorrad GS Challenge continued to uphold its legacy of testing riders' off-roading skills in demanding and unconventional terrains. Beyond its competitive aspect, the event also served as a unifying platform for BMW Motorrad owners and enthusiasts, fostering camaraderie and a shared spirit of GS adventure.

Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia, expressed his excitement about the event's return, saying, "We are thrilled to bring back the BMW Motorrad GS Challenge this year to our passionate GS rider community in Malaysia. Following its successful reception last year, it is a joy to see our participants once again experience the freedom, power, and adventurous spirit as they conquer challenging terrain, embodying everything our GS motorcycles were designed for."

The weekend's activities were meticulously designed to put participants' riding and navigation skills to the test. This included a series of unique off-road challenges and an exhilarating 'Follow the Trails' course tailored specifically for BMW G 310 GS owners.

At the end of Day 1, the top 10 riders were selected to participate in a heart-pounding round of skill assessments on Day 2. They all aimed for the exclusive opportunity to join the 'Follow the Trails' (FTT) Tour of the International BMW GS Trophy in Namibia, scheduled for 2024. As a token of their achievements, the top 10 finalists were presented with exclusive prizes, generously provided by the official tire sponsor, Metzeler.

After two grueling days of intense competition, which included an evening of fine dining and musical performances at the 'GS Fireplace' dinner, the standout performers emerged as the victors. They secured their spots on the coveted FTT Namibia 2024 tour.
The triumphant riders, announced in no particular order, are Asmawi Bin Ali, Diwaagar A/L Tambychandran, Affendy Syed Omar, Zulkifli Bin Zainal Abidin, and Azlan Shah Bin Ahmad Suhaimi.

The BMW Motorrad GS Challenge 2023 not only celebrated the adventurous spirit of GS motorcycles but also showcased the unwavering determination and skill of its riders. These five finalists now look forward to representing Malaysia on the global stage as they gear up for the ultimate GS adventure in Namibia next year.
