what we do | why we do it
After a successful third year, and the first full year of enduro racing, we are back for 2013! The Oregon Enduro Series believes that the overall experience is the most important part of enduro racing. Having fun is as important as the competitive aspect of our events. The multi-stage gravity enduro format combines the best parts of riding with your buddies and ripping down some of the best trails in existence, with that of some good old-fashion competition. Our race courses require a balance of both technical bike-handling skills and physical fitness components to participate. The goal is to provide a level playing field for both climbers and descenders so we may crown the top all-around athletes. Plus, the enduro format offers a great experience for serious competitors, weekend warriors and those who just want to enjoy our world class mountain biking with an après-ride festival atmosphere.
This year we will keep the existing race venues–Hood River, Bend, Ashland and Mt.Hood/Sandy–and add a new venue at Camas Washington making it a five-race enduro championship series. We will also add the NEW Ashland Super D as the Oregon State Championships! As always, our goal is to support and celebrate riders, not just racers. All individual series races will have cash and merchandise prizing for top finishers in each category with an overall award ceremony following the season finale race at Sandy Ridge. Expect world class courses, camaraderie, epic dirt, raffle prizes, music, and solid local and industry support.
The Oregon Enduro Series is an equal opportunity recreation provider operating under Special Use Permits from the Deschutes, Rogue-River Siskiyou, and Mt Hood National Forest. Also operating under Permits from the Oregon Bureau of Land Management, Washington State Department of Natural Resources, and the Hood River County Forestry Department.
