SUPPORTING RIDERS AS THE��OFFICIAL OFF-ROAD VEHICLE PARTNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL GS TROPHY 2022

22 teams. 1,300 kilometres of tough terrain. And us. In September 2022, 20 Grenadiers will join a total of��60��riders tackling the wilds of Albania through the mountains, valleys, rivers, forests, and along the beaches of this little-explored country.

TESTING THE LIMITS

The Grenadiers,��some driven by INEOS Automotive mechanics,��will travel everywhere the bikes do over the seven-day event. Keeping up with the teams and navigating the same brutal course while fully laden with provisions and supplies for the riders. A challenging job that will call on all��the vehicle���s��4X4 performance, capability, and durability.��

Every other year, owners and riders of BMW���s GS motorbike range gather to compete in this highly demanding off-road challenge. Previous��events��have taken place in��New Zealand, Mongolia, Thailand, Canada, Patagonia, South Africa, and Tunisia.��2022 is the first time��the International BMW Motorrad GS Trophy��will be��held in Europe.��

Part one of our rugged 4X4���s involvement is the recce. Six Grenadiers will help scout the route before the start of the event proper. Then, from 1st to 14th September, they���ll be joined by 14 other Grenadiers, to shadow the bikes and riders on the tough course.��

WE’RE DELIGHTED TO BE ABLE TO SUPPORT OUR FRIENDS AT BMW WITH INEOS GRENADIERS FOR THIS YEAR’S EVENT. THE INTERNATIONAL BMW MOTORRAD GS TROPHY IS ONE OF THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST OFF-ROAD CHALLENGES. A GREAT TEST FOR THE RIDERS AND THEIR MACHINES – AND FOR THEIR GRENADIER SUPPORT VEHICLES. EXACTLY THE SORT OF THING WE BUILT THE GRENADIER FOR.”
