Okay boys and girls we have the results from the 2012 GS Trophy East Coast Qualifier!!!! Dan came in first!! What a rider, leagues ahead of everyone else. Carlo grabbed 2nd!! After spending an entire year two up to Patagonia on that same F800. I was blessed with an unexpected finish of 3rd overall.

As a 3rd place finalist I am now in the running for the finals in South America, but the competition isn't over yet. We need everyone to go to the BMW Motard US Facebook page and vote for the finalist you like the most to go on. There are 6 riders in the running for the USA and this voting will narrow it down to the 3 that go to the Trophy Challenge and represent the USA. I really cannot believe I finished this well and would be honored to represent the USA, the ADV community, and BMW in South America.

Be on the look out for a thread with pictures and videos!!

Thanks to everyone for voting,
Andrew Lacy

Me taking on the famous sand pit at the performance center. Check out that trails stop at the end of the run, those GS's are balanced!
