Team UK.

The participants in the Int. GS Trophy 2020.

The UK is one of the Int. GS Trophy’s bedrocks. Back in 2010 the team had their biggest success winning the whole competition, six years later they made it in the top 3 of the leaderboard. This time, Richard Cox (47), Roy Prescott (46) and Tim Mitchell (25) will give one’s all to make their homeland proud again. Richard Cox from Clutton is a civil engineer, Roy Prescott, who comes from Barton, works as a farmer and Tim Mitchell from Warrington earns his money as a car technician

What does the “Spirit of GS” mean to you?

Spirit of GS to me is about the adventure of going new places and meeting new friends along the way.

What made you want to learn how to ride a motorbike?

My dad has always owned BMW bikes for as long as I can remember, I've been brought up around boxer engines so riding bikes was inevitable!

What is your favourite trail?

Very hard to pick my favourite trail, snowdonia is great for twisty roads or challenging off-road sections and both offer breathtaking views!
