“Team Up to Give Back”

We are happy to announce a new addition to our events …the Oregon Enduro Muscle Milk Team Challenge! This is a new and innovative way to bring a team atmosphere to a relatively individual sport while encouraging our participants to give back to their communities, trails and favorite charities.

Athletes will race for their individual results, and combine points with their teammates for a team score. There will be a winning team at each individual race and an overall Team Challenge winner crowned at the Oregon Enduro Finals. Winning teams will have a cash donation made to their charity of choice. The Oregon Enduro series prides itself on giving back to the trails we race and ride on, and we want to extend and reward that passion to the racers who attend our events.

Format:
The Team Challenge will be open to both Pro and amateur teams of two (2) or more participating athletes. There is no extra charge to participate in the Team Challenge. Teams can participate in one, a few or all five of the Oregon Enduro races. Teams will submit their requested profile information to jeremy@oregonenduro.com or fill out the online team registration form by clicking here.

The following information is needed:
- One or two images that represent the Team.
- Races your team plans on attending.
- Title and Brief team description including names of team members.
- Link to team's website or blog.
- The teams’ charity of choice.
- Short description of any charitable contributions to society the team has made in the last year...this could be trail work, financial donations, volunteering time, bike-part donations to under privileged kids, etc. If you need ideas, visit the Giving Back page on the Oregon Enduro website...click here.

Oregon Enduro Muscle Milk Team Challenge

After each race, a winning team will be chosen by the team’s average results and their level of contribution to society. The results portion will be the average accumulated points—the same points received for the Oregon Enduro overall points series divided by the number of team members. The second qualifying factor (charitable contribution) will be determined by a small group of judges on the Oregon Enduro and Muscle Milk staff. A winning team is awarded after each race.

The top five teams will be selected based on their average race results; the judge’s then review their charitable contributions to select a deserving team. Team points will be kept throughout the five-race series for an overall Team Challenge winner (Champions) selected at the Finals base solely on the points standings.

Prizes:
The team challenge winners of each race will be awarded $250 cash donated to their charity of choice. The team members will receive Muscle Milk gear, and a month supply of Muscle Milk products. The team and team’s sponsors will be highlighted in a press release after each event.

The overall Team Challenge Champions will be the team with the most combined points for all five Oregon Enduro races. The winning team will receive free entries to the 2014 Oregon Enduro Series and be crowned the Oregon Enduro Muscle Milk Team Challenge Champions.

 Am I the only one that wears elbow pads?? Anyone who has had an injury as a result of landing on their elbow will know better.
I forget my poc pads are even on at all why not wear them?? I know I have been saved a few times for sure.....
  • + 3
 I wear my fox elbow pads, have saved me more then i can think of.. I think about it and damn i would of had some more broken bones to add to the list lol .
  • - 3
 Don't wear pads as I have the full body armour and yeah you really forget it's on during the ride.
  • + 49
 I wear chainmail...
  • + 2
 I know this might sound silly, but when I've raced Super D, I opt out because of the arm pump. Also, the climbing. 40+ minute stage and my arms hate me.
  • + 0
 @MTGus, Titanium chainmail? That'd be light and tough...
  • + 1
 I always wear elbow pads when I race or ride DH. It's just one of those things where I would rather have the protection, just incase I hit a tree or fall in a rock section. They have saved my elbows more than once!

 looks like an XC race. that's why they don't use much armor

 MTGus: Mithril all the way! It is silvery and much stronger than tempered steel, but much lighter in weight. Smile

 @ bendikph Have you been in the space station for the last 2 years? We've been over what enduro is over and over again. Go read a Wikipedia article: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enduro_

 No, raw iron silly Wink
  • + 0
 Nahhh, I figure the chances of falling so severe to cause major injury is WAY too low to endure wearing those things. I can't understand how you'd wear them and still have the same control. I guess it's all about preferences but all I need for enduro/super d is knee pads, gloves and an xc lid. The one time I raced without knee pads was at the Bend stop of Oregon Super D, front tire washed out in a turn/rock garden, knee into rock, ended my season, haha. Whoops.
  • + 2
 Well I broke my elbow biking one time because I wasn't wearing elbow pads, so I almost feel obliged to wear them now. Plus I race motocross and that kinda made me more used to having extra gear on

 @Scott-townes:
Your comment sums up exactly why Jeff444 is asking this question. If you just change your story from your knee hitting a rock to your elbow hitting a rock your season still would've been ended.
  • + 1
 Elbows are even more delicate than knees and probably more painful. I have a pair and should wear them more often. It does not take a sever fall at all to damage an elbow. My friend fell and broke his elbow on a small rock going low speed. He can't ride anymore at all due to pain from it.

 skierdud- I never said otherwise... just sharing an opinion, bud.

 Think I'll get some elbow pads.

 This is great and all.... I'm definitely supportive of such events, but seriously... $250? That's all!? I sneeze and $250 is gone on a power bill for a month or even part of my rent. He'll that would buy 1.5 tires for my truck, I'd like to think they could put up more money than that. The month's supply of muscle milk they award as a prize probably costs $500. I guess every little bit counts when it comes to charities, but this hardly seems worthy of mentioning unless it's somehow to raise more money.

 Holy sh$# girls! Leave your bitching for the nail salon and be stoked that outside the industry companies are trying to get involved. Pinkbike comment threads are really hitting rock bottom.

 Winners are chosen?
Winners are decided by results. (Fixed that for yal).

Winners are chosen sounds like progressive mantra.
U know, like how everyone gets a trophy in t ball now.

 Muscle Milk is disgusting!!!!! Some synthetic garbage.
  • + 3
 Nothing healthy about muscle milk and its packed with MSG...
  • + 2
 Yeah, I had some a a couple times.. it was like drinking a chemical! It really tastes like that.
  • - 4
 Anyone that hates on muscle milk is an idiot that doesnt know how to read an ingredients list, all those big crazy words you see are various amino acids, not chemicals, the only reason its not very popular is due to its super high price for how much protein you get
  • + 2
 Well, amino acids are chemicals, but so is water. Can we stop saying "chemical" just to mean anything we feel uncomfortable about?
  • + 1
 I hate on it because it tastes like paint. Now begone, pedants.
  • + 1
 Touché... I am certainly a pedant. Being a teacher does that to you. Apologies.

 There is 10X more protein in a north American diet than your gut can absorb. That's why bowl/colon cancer is so prevalent. This crap didn't exist 20 years ago but do you think athletes were lacking protein intake? It's total garbage.

 @jclnv 10x sounds like a huge exaggeration to me since the average "North American" diet ACTUALLY contains 1.5-2x more protein than recommended. This amounts to 100-150g per day for the average male. The quantity of protein the body can absorb at 1 time (read per meal) is widely debated but likely falls somewhere between 30-60 grams. Do the math.

Colon cancer is known to have been around since ancient times. It is not new... Also, it is likely the cancers you mentioned have much more to do with the fats and carcinogens in meats, specifically red meats, than the protein itself. But there is no "matter of fact" in any of this despite the way you presented it.

 Well guys it looks like the Pharmacists and Statisticians have it out for each other. coming from the perspective of a serious athlete who has worked closely with doctors and trainers to get the best training program i think @jtnord is pretty close. I'm currently doing between 150 and 200 grams daily with a very closely monitored diet and hardcore training 7 days a week. That being said, Muscle Milk is a great product. It was never meant to be a high end supplement for professional athletes, That's why you can buy it at gas stations and low end sports stores.

And if you think Muscle milk tastes bad then you clearly have no experience with protein supplements. Most of them taste like absolute garbage.
let the neg props fly.

 It Looks like great fun! I wish we could have as sunny and dry weather for Gravity Enduro Ireland as you folks

 Just by curiosity, why are they wearing goggles in stead of clear lens sun glasses?
  • + 1
 Cause thats how they do in Oregon
  • + 7
 Well glasses suck when your haulen as$ on the down hill
  • + 19
 Because sunglasses aren't Enduro enough. I think there needs to be an article on proper Enduro etiquette.
  • + 3
 That^^^^ if you write it I will read it!
  • + 6
 Goggles > glasses. I laughed until I tried it. Better peripheral vision IMO, plus they keep the dirt particles out of my eyes a lot better. (And yeah, I'm from Oregon. :-/ )
  • + 13
 Im not from Oregon, but I can understand where your coming from. I wear goggles instead of glasses too, I get some funny looks in places like the supermarket and the dentist or library, but its all about the periphery for me.

 I go commando.

 Hahaha Zero that made me laugh.

 Does anyone know what pads those are in the middle picture? Those look nice and low profile.
  • + 1
 I believe they're the inner part of the tld lopes knee pads
  • + 1
 I thought they were the 5450s too, but they look different?
  • + 1
 I've been interested in them for a while. Anyone have some experience with them?
  • + 1
 I've got the elbow pad and the shirt, and while I haven't had to use them in anger yet, they seem to be fully legit. The Brooklyn gloves i had with that fabric were pretty indestructible. As far as profile, though, I'd have to give the nod to Fox 911 knee/shins.
  • + 2
 I run the knee only version of those. They are light, hard plastic and are the first knee pads I can pedal all day in and not feel like me knees are trapped.
