The best mountain bike freeriders in the world are gathering this weekend for the annual "Spring Training" at Highland Mountain Bike Park in Northfield, New Hampshire. The pros come from all over the world to train in the one-of-a-kind indoor facility that includes both foam pits and rubber ramps, as well as outside airbags to jump into.

This is the time and the place riders experiment with new tricks before the start of the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour. The highlight of the weekend will be the "Best Trick" event on Saturday.

Highland Mountain Bike Park was the dream of Mark Hayes, who built a world-class mountain bike park at a ski area that closed in the mid 1990's.

Hayes, a mountain bike enthusiast, tells Edging the Xtreme how he built one of the best know mountain bike parks in the world from the humble beginnings of a run-down ski mountain.
