2012 is an important year in for the Masters of Dirt performances that span Europe. This year marks the tenth anniversary of the Masters of Dirt, and during those years, we've been treated to tons of European FMX firsts, including the first backflip on a pit bike, the first double backflip from Murray, the first snowmobile backflip from Justin Hoyer and many more. Riders that have graced the MOD with their talents over the years include Nate Adams, Robbie Madison, Dustin Miller, Blake Williams, Rob Adelberg, Remi Bizouard, Libor Podmol and Edgar Torronteras.

Since the start of the show ten years ago, the MOD has been hosted inside of Vienna, Austria's Wiener Stadthalle, and sells out every year thanks to the tireless efforts of organizer George Fechter and his staff. This year, the show returned for three sold-out nights, and will move to the UK in mid-March before heading to Dublin, Ireland later in the month. During the Vienna shows, we were allowed an inside look at the performance, and what follows is a unique look at the Masters of Dirt circa 2012.
