The Orbea Fox Enduro Team is waiting for the moment to race.

Our riders gathered to ride in the heart of Portugal – Meeting for an intensive team camp to become acquainted, develop a bit of Team Spirit, recover riding feel and test setups and equipment on our Orbea Rallon bikes. The major calendar events will eventually come, and we will be ready.

But until then, let’s fine-tune our race setups to come back in fine style.














MENTIONS: @orbea / @raceface / @foxfactory / @Maxxis / @shimano

 @oskare: im 6’3 and even if i put my bike 50cm ahead of me on such a photo it still looks way smaller than theirs. Small guys on large and xl 29ers claiming they need 500 mm reach are going viral

 @vhdh666: Im 108kg and dont have any problems on a 36mm fork. There were 32mm forks back in the day stronger than what we have now. honestly I think its a 'because we can' thing

 @Orbea your USA customer service is a joke. I would avoid your bikes at all costs as to not have to deal with them. Cracked frames under warranty and wrong products and missing pieces sent as replacements then emails go unanswered . Absolutely pathetic.

 Cool to see Damien on a new team but, any factory team that does not have at least one female rider does the sport of enduro a disservice.

 Look at all those 36s (38s?) with pressure relief valves that I want to buy... Come on Fox! Just because Sea Otter isn't happening until the fall doesn't mean you have to wait until then to release these!

 Those bikes lookin like some monster trucks! Whats the model with the link from seat tube to downtube? Only one guy riding it?

 It's the Occam which is more their trail bike, has 140mm rear. Not really sure why he's riding that when they have the Rallon as their true Enduro rig but prob just some odd personal preference thing. Its interesting though because in the pic with all of them at the bottom, they are all on the Rallon.

 Is Portugal on complete lockdown from recreating? We got to ride in the Sintra area last year and it was siiiiick! Can't wait to make it back for Lousa and Madeira.

 @skidmarkbro: They just recommend you stick to short stretches of exercise, alone. Yeah, Portugal seems to be full of sweet places to ride! Check out Figueira de Foz as well as Lousã.
