Double the experience.

No longer competitors, Jenny and Amy are united in support.

They battled hard against each other in 2015 at the inaugural Int. GS Trophy female team selection trials, but for the upcoming 2018 finals in Mongolia Jennifer Huntley and Amy Harburg will put their competitive instincts aside in order to marshal and mentor the two female teams.

Reunited and it feels so good.

Got a dream ticket to Mongalia: Jennifer Huntley from UK.    

Reunited and it feels so good.

Travelling to central Asia to be part of the Int. GS Trophy is just reward for Jenny Huntley, the diminutive red-haired Brit who narrowly missed out on a chance to be one of the three first ever female competitors at the 2016 international finals. But BMW Motorrad saw Jenny’s potential right from the start and her hard work and dedication have paid off with the reward of a dream ticket to be part of the supporting team at the 2018 edition.

Since the 2015 competition BMW has kept me involved, firstly in a supportive role for the first female team, and then supporting me as an instructor and marshal. It is a dream!

Jenny Huntley

Reunited and it feels so good.

Female power and strength during the Int. GS Trophy 2016 in South East Asia.  

Reunited and it feels so good.

Missing out on that first female team place made Jenny even more determined to continue her development as a rider and instructor, and her efforts in becoming a certified instructor have certainly paid dividends.

“The training was amazing, the instructors from the Enduro Park in Hechlingen are very professional, patient and encouraging, and taking the course has cemented the direction I want to be going in as an instructor and marshal for future events. I knew I would not give up after 2015 and was determined to be a part of this. In doing so, I’ve discovered that I feel much more comfortable in a supporting role, rather than competing, so I think being a marshal is the perfect position for me.”

Being a part of the GS community means having a lot of fun.

Community spirit.

A force to be reckoned with: the female GS community.    

Community spirit.

The female GS community is already a force to be reckoned with and growing day-by-day, thanks to ambassadors such as Jenny, who lead by example and welcome and encourage others, especially female riders from across the globe to discover their potential, and improve their GS riding skills.

Even more amazing.

“I love this unique network of people across the globe, just knowing you can travel anywhere in the world and someone from our community is near by, it gives you strength and confidence to go anywhere,” she enthuses. “To see the girls competing with the men at the Trophy is amazing, but one day we won’t talk about it in this way — it will be natural and that will be even more amazing!” We couldn’t agree more Jenny, especially with your final piece of advice for the girls which is to “look up, take in the scenery, breathe the air, really be there ‘in the moment’, and not miss everything around you because you are thinking about winning. There is more to life than winning!” Spoken like a true champion, in our opinion.

Amy Harburg, Morag Campbell and Stephanie Bouisson were the first female team participating at the Int. GS Trophy 2016.    

Coming back for more.

From a competitor to a marshal: Amy made such great experiences.    

Coming back for more.

Australian Amy Harburg knows exactly the thrill of competing at an Int. GS Trophy event, so to return as a marshal somehow feels even more special because she remembers just how important a role these unsung heroes play at the Int. GS Trophy. “It's a real privilege to be returning to the Int. GS Trophy as a marshal,” says Amy. “As a competitor we are guided by the marshals in every sense and I really looked up to them. I expected them to be very serious and strict, but they were absolutely lovely and so willing to help. They made my GS Trophy such a great experience, so now as a marshal I'm looking forward to giving that experience back.”

Taking on the challenge.

Amy loves pure adventure. What else can be better than a big GS?    

Taking on the challenge.

Amy admits that she’s nervous about being a marshal because the role carries a lot of responsibility, but her desire to do a good job and be there for the competitors means that she’s working hard in her preparations. Furthermore, alongside Jenny she’s already been mentoring and supporting all the female riders who recently competed in South Africa to decide the International Female Team selection for the 2018 finals. “It was a wonderful experience mentoring and supporting the ladies in SA. It was also a lot less nerve racking than competing! The best part was seeing how they all interacted so well — it was great having a different perspective and being able to see how they took it all in their stride. It also bought back some wonderful memories.”

Fast journey.

Like Jenny, Amy has made the journey from competitor to certified instructor, to marshal, and is keen to stress that she couldn’t have done it without the help of the worldwide BMW Motorrad family. “It feels like only yesterday that I was a competitor, so it's hard to believe I'm now a certified instructor, let alone going to Mongolia as a marshal,” she says, with a shake of her head. “The journey has definitely felt fast, but the support from BMW Motorrad has been amazing, so I also feel very grateful for the opportunities.”
