Red Bull BC One has earned the reputation of being the most prestigious 1-on-1 b-boy battle in the world because of the highly skilled dancers who compete each year. This year’s battle is set to be a thrilling one.  Dancers hail from Korea (Hong 10 & Vero), Russia (Flying Buddha & Yan the Shrimp), Portugal (Lagaet), Japan (Taisuke), Venezuela (Lil G & Salo), Brazil (Neguin *2010 champion), Holland (Niek), France (Soso & Mounir) and Vietnam (3T). The U.S.A. will be represented by Roxrite, a member of the legendary “Renegades” crew from San Francisco; Morris from the “Fallen Kings” representing Sacramento, CA; and Boston b-boy, El Nino of the “Floorlords Crew.”

Known for his power moves, signature style and bravado, Morris is considered a favorite according to the b-boy forums. He recently won the UK B-Boy Championship solo battle; and is no stranger to Red Bull BC One, having made it to the semi-finals in 2009. Roxrite has a lifetime record of more than 60 first places, many of which were in 1-on-1 competitions. Despite injury he battled his way to third place in 2006 at Red Bull BC One in Brazil. In 2007, at the Red Bull BC One championship in South Africa, he made it all the way to the final round nabbing runner up.
El Nino secured championships at competitions in Holland and Belgium but it was his win this summer in Boston at the Red Bull BC One USA National Finals that earned him a spot on the dance floor in Moscow.
