This year, the competition is set to expand even further, with City Cyphers being held in more cities and the addition of four regional Cyphers.

Red Bull BC One, the world’s most prestigious one-on-one breaking competition, returns to India for its fifth straight year in the country. The first-ever edition in India in 2015 saw breakers from around the country travel to Mumbai to participate in workshops and Cyphers, with Flying Machine being crowned the first Red Bull BC One India Champion. Since then, the competition has grown in leaps and bounds in the country, with six City Cyphers being held last year.

This year, the competition is set to expand even further, with City Cyphers being held in more cities and the addition of four regional Cyphers. In previous editions, breakers competed in City Cyphers to earn their spot in the Cypher India; this year, those that are selected in the City Cyphers will then compete in the regional Cypher of their respective region. And, for the first time in the country, each region will also host B-Girl Cyphers, with two India Champions ultimately being selected at the national stage — one B-Boy and one B-Girl.

With the Red Bull BC One Cypher in the East, North and South Zones complete, the west zone is up next, with Pune on April 8, Mumbai on April 10, and the Red Bull BC One Cypher West Zone on April 11. Red Bull BC One All Star Ronnie and star breakers B-Boy Luigi and B-Girl Narumi will judge proceedings in the West Zone.
