Distinguished Triumph up for grabs

Special Thruxton top prize for fundraisers

Triumph Thruxton 1200 RS

A one-off Triumph Thruxton 1200 RS is the big price for the top fundraiser this year in The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride (DGR) to celebrate the event’s 10th anniversary.

Ride founder Mark Hawwa of Sydney says the one-of-one motorcycle designed in collaboration with Triumph Motorcycles is “an exciting way to honour” the 10th anniversary.

Triumph has been the major sponsor of the DGR for the last eight years.

Since 2012, the event has connected hundreds-of-thousands of classic and vintage style motorcyclists from more than 100 countries and raised $US27.45m for men’s health. 

The unique Thruxton was designed, painted, and customised in Triumph’s UK paint shop.Triumph Thruxton 1200 RS

It will be the first prize in the “Gentlefolk Competition”.

To gain entry to the competition, fundraisers need to follow these four steps to unlock four “badges”:

  1. Complete their Profile;
  2. Donate to their own Profile;
  3. Complete a Random Donation; and
  4. Raise a minimum of $US250 (about $A320).

All entrants will receive a 2021 DGR Commemorative Prize Patch and a single entry into the competition to win the DGR Thruxton RS. 

Prize winners will be drawn by the DGR when fundraising closes on 6 June, 2021.

Mark describes the DGR Triumph Thruxton RS as “a piece of DGR memorabilia that brilliantly represents the committed efforts of our dedicated gentlefolk around the world”.Triumph Thruxton 1200 RS

Other fund-raising incentive prices are:

  • Three other new Triumph motorcycles;
  • Custom top-50 fundraiser Hedon helmets with a 10th year anniversary design;
  • Up 10 Hedonist helmets custom-painted by 10 renowned artists and auctioned off during the campaign;
  • Belstaff classic motorcycle outfits for top fundraiser and sprint prizes for event fundraisers; and
  • ELF lubricants prizes. 

There is still time to register for the 2021 DGR. Just click here.

The ninth annual event went virtual in 2020 because of the pandemic, resulting in the number of participants and fundraising for the Movember Foundation being halved.

From this year the men’s health charity event is permanently moving to May from this year.

Organisers hope the shift to May for the northern hemisphere riding season will better suit riders and increase fund-raising opportunities.
