38 Cypher Winners will Compete for a Spot in the World Final C-Sick to Japan for the final of Red Bull BC One
Red Bull BC One Cypher World Final is returning to Japan on December 3, this time in the incredible city of Nagoya, the country’s third largest city and a bustling hub for Hip Hop. B-Boy C-Sick will be joining sixteen of the best B-Boys on the planet will go head-to-head in knockout battles to determine who will be the one. The event will be broadcast live on Red Bull TV.
As Red Bull BC One entered its 13th year, big changes marked the year. In order to open up the event year-round to the wider community, the six regional Finals were replaced with Red Bull BC One Camps all over the world as an attempt to go back to the core of what breaking is all about: culture. The World Final will once again be invitation only, with the exception of one name to be determined by a Last Chance Cypher where all cypher winners throughout the year will compete for one open spot that will conclude the line-up.
This Last Chance Cypher will represent an incredible cultural exchange, as B-Boys will come in from all over the world to prove their skills on the dance floor and battle in an attempt to earn that one coveted spot on the ultimate stage. The winner will compete in the World Final alongside a line-up of Wild Card entries, chosen by an international team of B-Boy experts.
Last year, millions of spectators tuned in from around the world to see USA’s Victor take the belt in Rome. Each year the stakes become higher and the competition tougher, as breakers continue to evolve the art form. It will be an unbelievable week of events not to be missed. Kuwaiti winner b-boy C-Sick was part of last year’s battle; the incredibly talented break-dancer has won the National Cypher three times in a row in 2014, 2015 and 2016!
“I cannot believe I was able to make it again this year! I am extremely excited to battle against the best b-boys from all around the world for the third time,” said bboy C-Sick.
