Masters of Dirt | Vienna/Austria
MOD Press Release | Pics by Martin Reiter

Mission accomplished - 14 March 2011: The Vienna Stadthalle was shaken by a 3 hour barrage of non-stop aerial madness this past weekend. Two sold out audiences witnessed the most intense, action packed and thrilling MoD show to date.

The ambitious plan ahead of the event set some high expectations - with more ramps and airtime jammed into an indoor arena than ever before. The pressure was on everyone to deliver the goods and rock the house. Thankfsully, every part of the show fell into place perfectly. Meaning we will have an even tougher job next time around to top it.

A big thank you to all the fans that packed into the stands, the crew who worked so hard to make the show so slick, the riders, DJ mosakken, the Fuel Girls, our new Miss MoD and lastly but definitely most importantly, our sponsors. Without Monster Energy, Raiffeisen Club, Dotz Wheels, NRJ hit radio, Playstation & Cmyk shoes our show would never have been possible on this scale.
