Day 1 Review
We've had an amazing full of inspiration first day of Red Bull BC One Camp Russia.
Positive vibes, smiling people, shiny weather and of course 50 shades of urban culture hit Saint- Petersburg yesterday.
The most significant yesterdays highlights were the very emotional b-girl battle 8 palms - where b-girl Kastet took it all. Next time we'll se her in Zurich representing Russia at the B-Girl battle.
103 b-boys from all over Russia (from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad) tried their last chance to get to Red Bull BC One Cypher this year! More than 500 spectators faced the dramatic final between b-boy Cyga and b-boy Kap. One did crazy powermoves and showed outstanding body control another had sickest transitions, was very charismatic, stylish and smart in planning moves. Both were worth taking it to finals but this year we congratulate b-boy Kap being the 16-th b-boy in battle bracket of Red Bull BC One Cypher Russia 2018.
Saint-Petersburg hosted tonight the most significant and awaited breakdancing contest of the year - Red Bull BC One Cypher Russia. 16 best ingenious b-boys representing authentic breaking styles from far east to north west of Russia battled at full blast for the chance to get to World Finals.
The battle bracket was just dope. 1st battle of the 1st round of Cypher was the iconic confrontation of two legendary scenes and generations: Moscow vs Saint-Petersburg embodied in b-boy Aslan (Bootoz// Predatorz crew) fighting against b-boy Nord Diamond (TOP9 crew). That battle already set the level.
The most outstanding style and incredible body control was shown by Bullet from space from Mafia Thirteen. The mystic warrior he was. He made it to the final!
"Last year I lost in first round at Red Bull BC One Cypher Russia to (b-boy) Arsex. That was a life changing moment, I was facing the decision either to live 'ordinary' life or to focus on breaking and win the next Cypher. I've chosen the last. I've set the goal, i started training and now i'm here and it's done. Next step is LLC where i'd love to bring happy and positive vibes from Russia" - that's how Bullet commented on his victory.
