The Albion just posted a digital copy of their 13th issue that was published earlier this year, and it contains a great interview with Jeff Kocsis. Jeff talks about the importance of style in his riding, his influences and Jersey roots, and more. Check it out above on page 70, or you can digitally flip through the article directly here.
A quick reminder to all the riders in Vancouver, our Sick As Hell-O-Ween Jam with Wheelies BMX Shop is this Saturday, October 26th at the Port Coquitlam Skatepark from noon to dark. We’ll be grilling weenies and burgers all day and there will of course be a best trick and best costume prizes. Come out, wear a costume and have a great afternoon with us.

Check out the ad we have running in the November issue of RideBMX Magazine of Dillon for his upcoming signature Diller frame. You can expect the frame to drop and be available in early spring, and it’s built to the specs of Dillon and what he wants like a 13.6″ back end with wide clearance to fit fat tires, removable brake mounts and more. We’ll be dropping more info on it soon, but for now you can go check out the sneak peek bike check we did with him here and pick up issue #195 of RideBMX everywhere now.
It’s back again. Our Sick As Hell-O-Ween BBQ Jam is going down this year on Saturday, October 26th from noon until dark at Railside skatepark in Port Coquitlam, BC.

Riders of all skills levels are encourage to come out and have fun. Mark your calendars.
Practice has already been popping off from the first day of Dew Tour practice and a couple videos are starting to circulate. Check out these two quick edits from RideBMX and The Come Up.

Dew Tour is back in San Francisco this week, and Kevin Kiraly and Jeff Kocsis both got invites to ride in this year’s event. We are pumped for both of our dudes to be out there in the contest and see them ride against some of the strongest talent in the industry. Jeff and Kevin both ride with totally different and unique styles, and with the SF contest the course is largely modelled after legendary San Francisco spots, so it’ll be even more interesting to see how they both interpret it.
They will be riding in the Street contest and Kevin will also be in the Streetstyle contest, which is a downhill course on a real San Francisco street that they close down and add obstacles too. BMX Street semi-finals begin on Friday with finals on Saturday, and Streetstyle on Sunday. The events will be live streamed online, as well as airing on TV on NBC. Check out the schedule here, and we’ll be posting more later this week.
