    The Touratech trophy has been designed to be a fun competition open to anyone, no matter what their ability or what type of bike they ride. The competition will take place at the Touratech UK Flagship store in South Wales. It will be held during the Annual Touratech Travel Event which runs from Friday the 3rd May to Monday the 6th May 2013 in Ystradgynlais, South Wales.

    To enter the Touratech Trophy competitors must pay £20 plus the £10 to attend the Travel Event. The entrance fee for the competition includes a T-shirt, Competitors medal, camping, access to all the talks, ride outs and Walters Arena on the Sunday.

    The teams will be picked out of a hat on the Friday evening. This is to ensure the teams are equal and have a good mix of experienced riders and beginner riders within each team, to win, team mates will have to work together and help each other.
