Thanks to a huge community effort over the span of 4 years led by Digger & the NSMBA, MEC & nsmb.com Expresso now represents a new era of North Shore flow. A golden ribbon of dirt filled with bermed corners from top to bottom, both intermediate and expert riders alike will enjoy the trail with optional tables, roll downs and of course, the big smooth rock ride. Some mandatory woodwork will put this into the category of a black diamond trail for most riders but hey, this is the Shore and is a blue as far as locals are concerned.

Riding well for the most part. A few of the berms suffering a little with pothole being bashed out.

reporter One of the grade reversal wedges has broken, quick repair will probably prevent needing a full rebuild. One nail is sticking up, I'll try to bend...

Top half is running amazing right now with lots of fresh corners. Bottom is much rougher.

 Pretty soft black as far as I'm concerned.
