"Vicious Victor" Claims Title of Southeast Champ at Red Bull BC One Cypher Orlando

On June 30th, at Full Sail Live, “Vicious Victor” Montalvo took the crown in front of over 450 cheering fans, representing his hometown of Orlando as he rose to the top of the bracket.“Victor really took over the moment,” proclaimed judge RoxRite. “He played his rounds right. It was tough competition, but he always had more.” Victor, of the Fleet Boys crew, had his share of strong competition.  Victor beat out Morgan “Stripes” Andrews of Jacksonville, in the final, both having battled on the Red Bull BC One stage in previous years. The Red Bull BC One Cypher Orlando was a part of the prestigious Freestyle Sessions national event, hosted by The Bboy Spot.

Terry who was with me said that she always picked "Vicious Victor" because he always had incredible moves.  This really should be an Olympic Sport since it is much more interesting to watch than Pole vaulting. Members of these crews could balance and support all their weight on one arm. It made me want to go home and try to do a push up. It is fun to watch the crews mock each other as they swagger. Contestants pace impatiently until they can strut their stuff. Before one of the rounds, a five year old boy ran out and started doing his moves. MC Supernatural played it up saying he expected to see this boy as a champ a few years from now.

"Vicious Victor" Montalvo, representing Florida, will move on to compete against the best b-boys in the U.S. during the Red Bull BC One North American Final held August 17th in Houston, Texas. The dancer who earns the national championship title in Houston will step onto the world stage to compete against the best of the best at the Red Bull BC One World Finals, hosted in South Korea.
