Built with a true community effort, led by the Race Face Shore Corps to connect Expresso with Pennzoil to create one continuous descent, the trail has high speed sections, pumps & rollers and even a couple of A Frame/launchers and table tops to keep things interesting. Everything is rollable so there's no consequences for the intermediate rider. Hit the rock roll near the exit for a happy ending. Thanks to all of the community supporters and volunteers who put their skin in the game including Sacre-Davey Engineering, Steed Cycles, Santa Cruz Bicycles, Arc'teryx & Methanex. Thank you to the District of North Vancouver for the permission and support to build the trail.

Running sooo good. Mostly dried out and the colder temperatures seem to have hardened things up a bit. Should be awesome until the next...
