Red Bull BC One World Final
All Roads Lead to Rome
The World’s Biggest B-Boy Competition Goes Down November 14
On November 14, the most iconic B-Boy competition comes to the Eternal City, in Rome’s Palazzo dei Congressi. After 70 Cyphers and six regional Finals, the best B-Boys on the planet are convening in the eternal city for head-to-head battles to take home the ultimate breaking prize. Watch it live on Red Bull TV and in multiple languages including English, Spanish and Italian on redbullbcone.com. Tune in to the epic live show at 21:15!
Last year, millions of spectators tuned in from around the world to see Red Bull BC One All Star Menno take the throne in Paris, and the king of flow is back to defend his title.
But Menno is up against the newest generation of B-Boys. Each year the stakes become higher and the competition tougher, as breakers continue to evolve the art form. Rome’s Top 16 includes USA’s Victor (two-time North America champion), Morocco’s Lil Zoo (three-time Middle East Africa champion), and UK Wild Card Sunni, and each represents the young guns of breaking today. They’ve learned from the best and are constantly evolving the art form with their own unique skills and creativity.
Asia will be out in full force with Pocket and Leon from South Korea, and Issei and Kazuki Rok from Japan. Ratin represents Latin America and Brazil for the first time ever on the global stage. Bruce Almighty will battle for Portugal.
Other participants include USA breaking legend El Niño, who has been dancing since the age of five. Competition runs in his blood. And other Wild Cards include Russia’s Alkolil who is back for more, and first-timer’s USA’s Kareem, Poland’s Thomaz and France’s Nasso.
And then there’s Killa Kolya, the first ever World Final participant from Kazakhstan. He won the Eastern European Final, which also saw the first-ever B-Girl at the Final level, Bulgaria’s Queen Mary. Red Bull BC One has never been more global.
MC Supernatural (USA) will host the evening’s festivities and DJ Marrrtin (France) will be spinning all original tracks for the first time ever at a World Final. The judges for the evening are Cico (Italy), Wing (South Korea), Poe (USA), Lamine (France) and Focus (Finland).
Don’t miss the event live on Nov.14 on Red Bull TV. It’s a night full of surprises, including all new beats created just for the event, and moves that will have your head spinning. It’s an evening not to be missed!
Breaking came to Italy in the early 1980s, and quickly grew as a movement within the country’s many cultural centers. The Italian style is recognized all over the world, and today a rich and active scene has developed across the country. With its dynamic creativity and best-in-class dancers, Italy is primed to welcome the top breakers of 2015. Tickets sold out in a matter of seconds but you can take your seat at home or on the go with Red Bull TV!
Red Bull BC One was founded in 2004 in Biel, Switzerland. Over the years, the championship has moved from Germany to Brazil, South Africa, France, the USA, Japan, Russia and South Korea. Today it remains a key event in Hip Hop culture, helping to push the culture forward while respecting the original format of one-on-one battles.
All of the epic moments, battles and thrills can be found on Redbullbcone.com, home to the largest online network of B-Boys and fans, and the event is home to the biggest Facebook community in the scene, with more than 1.7 million fans.

France’s MOUNIR Wins the Red Bull BC One 2012 World Championship

 France’s MOUNIR Wins the Red Bull BC One 2012 World Championship

December 8—RIO DE JANEIRO—Monnir Biba, aka B-Boy Mounir, 28, of France took home the biggest prize in breaking at this year’s Red Bull BC One 2012 World Final, the most important 1-on-1 B-Boy competition in the world. 3000 hungry fans braved the heat and packed the stands of the sweltering Fundição Progresso, a major cultural center in the city, to catch the action of 16 of the world’s best B-Boys from Brazil to Japan.

The stadium felt the sway of the crowd and the vibration of the floor with each aerial move, fancy footwork and extended freeze. The newest B-Boy champion Mounir said of his victory: “It’s my third time here. I had a crazy start. I did the whole trip. I won the cypher, I won the qualifier, I came here to win.”

This year represented some of the most challenging and innovative moves seen to date. The night was full of surprises that had the crowd screaming from the stands, from local hero Klesio, combining a samba step with top rocks, and B-Boy Junior of France, who seemed to spend more time in the air than on the ground. As soon as South Korean B-Boy Differ defeated the reigning champion, USA’s Roxrite, in the second round, it became clear that it was anyone’s game.

Differ was a crowd favorite the entire night, from the moment he stepped onto the stage with a Gangnam dance step to his comedic movements displayed throughout the night, showing a light-hearted style rarely seen in the world of B-Boying. It was enough to take him to the final round, in a demanding five-routine battle against Mounir, who also competed in the 2008 and 2011 world finals. “He definitely showed us he was comfortable being himself,” said judge and 2010 Champion Neguin of Brazil of Differ. “That’s the main thing in B-Boying.”

But ultimately it was Mounir of the Vagabonds Crew who stole the show, showing a complete mastery of B-Boy foundation, perfect execution, and pure craft on top, resulting in flawless routine after routine. Mounir had been training nonstop all year round for this moment, and his dedication to the craft was clear to everyone watching. “He came all out, and that’s why he won,” said Neguin. “He was so confident about himself and that’s the key. If you are confident, you just go on stage and you do your best.”

Tonight was a culmination of a year’s worth of fierce competitions. Half of this year’s contenders earned their place to compete by participating in one of the 60 country cyphers or winning one of the six regional qualifiers this year. Mounir’s victory from winning the French cypher to Western European qualifier to 2012 World Final, shows the true path of a Red Bull BC One World Champion.

Millions of fans watched the event live on TV, with hundreds of thousands more viewing it live on the web. Each thrilling movement from the world final is viewable for the next week on redbullbcone.com. 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the Red Bull BC One, which will be the biggest one yet, a true testament to the growing B-Boy culture and community around the globe.

It’s On! The Red Bull BC One 2012 World Championship Battles in Rio

This December 8th, all eyes will be on Rio de Janeiro. This coastal Brazilian city, a major influence on B-Boying with its capoeira and ginga style, will serve as home of the Red Bull BC One, the most important 1-on-1 B-Boy competition in the world. When it comes to the most innovative dancing today, you’ll find it on this stage. To make it to the finals is an honor reserved for only the greatest B-Boys in the world. Each year the competition gets tougher and tougher, resulting in the most physically challenging power moves, jaw-dropping freezes, and creative and diverse combinations.

2012 marked the biggest year yet for the Red Bull BC One. Over a thousand B-Boys the world over competed in more than 60 country cyphers. Six qualifier events narrowed down top contenders in North America, Latin America, Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Asia Pacific, and a first-ever competition held in Middle East Africa. The winners earned a chance to compete against the reigning champion, Roxrite (USA) and a panel-chosen group of nine of the world’s top dancers.

The 16 dance contenders have been training intensely all year for their moment in Rio. It’s an extremely high-pressure competition, with one dancer being eliminated in each battle round. Judges score the B-Boys on their battle strategy, power moves, dance foundation, fresh routine, and overall style. This year a panel of judges including Red Bull BC One All Star Neguin (Brazil), Red Bull BC One All Star Taisuke (Japan), Moy (USA), Niek (Holland), and Storm (Germany), will determine the winner of the ultimate B-Boy prize.

This year’s six qualifier winners are DOMKey (USA), Klesio (Brazil), Lil Zoo (Morocco), Mounir (France), Shorty Force (South Korea) and Slav (Bulgaria). If Roxrite takes the title this year, he’ll be the only B-Boy in history to win the championship two years in a row. But he’s up against, among others, this year’s youngest dancer, 15-year-old wunderkind Issei from Japan, who recently won this year’s R16 in Korea. The final this year is anyone’s game, with a highly competitive roster rounded out by Arex (Colombia), Sunni (UK), Vicious Victor (USA), Kid David (USA), Junior (France), ExacT (Russia), Differ (South Korea), and Hill (Mexico).

Hip Hop DJ Skeme Richards will lay down the battle music and Brazilian rapper Dughettu will MC the night.
