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. 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.

REGISTER YOUR TEAM HERE!
The following information is needed:
- One or two images that represent the Team.
- 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.
After each race, a winning team will be chosen by the teams’ 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 selected at the Finals based solely on the points standings.
The team challenge winners of each race will be awarded $250 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 Winner 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.
