Sixteen of the world’s most talented break dancers, including 2011 World Champion Roxrite, will compete for the coveted title of the world’s best breaker on December 8, during the Red Bull BC One in Rio de Janeiro. The coveted title honors the extraordinary skills of individual B-Boys from around the world.

Before Roxrie won the Red Bull BC One World Finals in Moscow last year, he won first place in 70 different competitions.
