The arena of the City Hall of Vienna will open its doors to the famous show "Masters of Dirt" for three days, starting today (Fri). The world’s best motocross drivers will amaze the audience with stunts such as tandem backflips.
The show was apparently completely booked out last year. This year, the event promises even more spectacular stunts.
While US-motocross driver Jimmy Blaze will attempt a backflip in his Buggy, Hugo Arriazu (Spain) will try a somersault forwards in his quad. Neither of these stunts has been shown in a live show.
Georg Fechter, the organiser of the event, hopes that, like in previous events, nobody will suffer from severe injuries.
"But I owe my loyal fans to offer them the newest and the best stunts of the freestyle sector", said Mr Fechter in a press release.
