Birmingham b-boys get ready for the Red Bull BC One UK Cypher

Written by

One of the world’s best breaking competitions, Red Bull BC One, is coming to Birmingham for the second year running on Saturday April 25 – and there's still time for local b-boys to get in on the action.

The winner of the Red Bull BC One UK Cypher will qualify for the Western European Finals, and after that it's just a short flight to Rome for the World Finals later in the year.

2013 BC One champ Lilou will be on the judging panel alongside the UK's most successful b-boy of all time, Mouse, running the rule over eight pre-selected breakers – Spin, Sunni, LB, Victor J, Echo, B-Girl Rawgina, Kharnage, Ling – and a host of newbies from across the country.

If you think you've got what it takes, then sign up to take part in these one-on-one battles right here.

Budding b-boys and b-girls still honing their top-rocks, down-rocks, power moves, freezes and other essential b-boy moves can still get involved, too. The UK finals are free to watch and the Red Bull BC One crew – who've been doing this since 2004 – will be hosting a range of workshops in the city.

The action goes down at the Q Club on Saturday April 25, from 6pm. Tickets are free. For more information go to the website.
