We live and breathe for the spirit of GS.

We share the adventure.

Caution, contagious! Wherever your journey takes you and whoever accompanies you, the GS ambassadors are spreading the spirit of GS around the world. They fascinate with their adventures. They excite with their tales. And with their courage they inspire you to go out and discover the unknown. 
We can only introduce a few here, because more and more of you are becoming infected and being carried away by the spirit of GS.

The GS has opened up a whole new world for me and changed my life completely.

The Englishwoman Elspeth Beard clearly remembers this time. When she went off into the unknown on the seat of her BMW in 1982, she set standards for future adventurers. She often recounts her story to spellbound audiences. A book is being planned. And Hollywood has already been calling.

Tomm Wolf is connected with the GS world like no other. As early as 1980, he has been embarking on adventures on the R 80 G/S. His unfathomable enthusiasm and fascination for enduro riding is infectious. So it's no wonder that he has made his hobby into his profession and now works as an instructor in the Enduro park.
But he didn't stop there. Those on fire set others alight. And so Tomm Wolf was predestined for the role of the sports manager at the int. GS Trophy. And it didn't take him long to acquire the nickname "Mister GS Trophy". The Spirit of GS is in every fibre of his body and can exudes from his personality.
