RED BULL BC ONE Celebrates 10th Anniversary
The hunt for the next World Champion B-Boy begins this February when the 2013 Red Bull BC One season kicks off launching a series of Cyphers in every corner of the world. Since it's founding 10 years ago, Red Bull BC One has earned a reputation as the premiere one-on-one B-Boy Championship. From the first global competition held in Switzerland, the Community has grown immensely alongside the resurgence of B-Boying culture as a whole. Redbullbcone.com represents the largest online network of B-Boys and fans; and the event is home to the biggest Facebook Community in the scene, with over half a million fans.
As a continuation of the legacy, the Red Bull BC One All Stars was formed in 2010 and has grown from its original team of four to a crew of nine internationally renowned dancers who are all veterans of the competition. The Red Bull BC One All Stars travel the world teaching workshops; judging and competing in battles; educating and inspiring a new generation by sharing their knowledge and passion for B-Boying - one of the original elements of Hip Hop.
ALL STAR HIGH PERFORMANCE TRAINING
To be the best takes dedication, perseverance and a lot of serious training. The BC One All Stars earned an extra set of wings after participating in Red Bull's High Performance training camp this winter. A team of industry-leading coaches, sports scientists, nutritionists, biomechanics and performance neuro-feedback experts, led by Dr. Andy Walshe ran the dancers through a custom program designed to pinpoint and perfect their training, nutrition and performance. The team used related training methodology with world champion athletes including Felix Baumgartener, Shaun White and Lolo Jones in preparation for their career- defining moments. This exclusive video (http://youtu.be/NssnQ3RhLr4) goes behind the scenes showing how the BC One All Stars were taken out of their comfort zone and into a 360-degree high-performance training experience reserved for the most elite athletes in the world.
THE STAKES ARE HIGH
