It was a tough battle on Sunday (June 10th) at Red Bull Station, in downtown São Paulo, where 16 of the best b-boys from across the country competed for the 2018 Red Bull BC One Brazil Cypher. The public who went to see the performances was thrilled to follow the battles and could check the surprising victory of b-boy Bart against b-boy Allef.
Born in Fortaleza, a State in the Northeast of Brazil, Mateus Melo is known as Bart. He is 20 years old and had already competed two times before on Red Bull BC One Brazil Cypher. The b-boy began to dance when he was 11 years old and likes to mix elements from martial arts to his moves. "I prepared a lot for this challenge and I'm very happy that everything went well. My time came", he said after receiving the trophy. "Now, in Zurich, the battles will be much more complicated, but I'm going to win."
The jury for Red Bull BC One Brazil Cypher 2018 was formed by renowned brazilian b-boys Pelezinho, Fabgirl and Roxrite.
