Amy Harburg BMW G310GS GS Trophy 2018

Every two years since 2008, BMW have organised the increasingly popular International GS Trophy in various locations across the globe, attracting many teams of thrill seeking adventurers in the process.

This year’s 6th edition of the event was held in Mongolia, where for the first time not one but two female teams qualified.

Back in 2016, Amy Harburg (pictured) was part of the first female team to feature at the event, and two years later she was back in Mongolia as one of a select group of marshals.

Amy recently completed the annual APC Rally in Australia on Rally Raid’s modified BMW G310GS.

Before the first bike even landed in the showroom, she’d marked it out as something of a game changer, recently telling BMW:

“But when the G 310 was first released I loved the look of it and was convinced it could open up a lot of doors to adventure riding for women and smaller riders, especially as it was so competitively priced, which made it a great entry-level choice.” 

After riding the bike to the GS Trophy from the Russian port of Vladivostok, then spending the best part of a month in Mongolia as a marshal, the 42-year old Australian is now getting ready to ride the little adventure bike back across the vast expanse on Mongolia and Russia, and then on to Rally Raid HQ in the UK.

The specially developed tubeless spoked wheels have been fitted with Continental TKC 80 tyres, which have long been a favourite of the team at Rally Raid for their versatility over a wide range of terrain.
