Jeff Kocsis has been tripping around the Middle East for the last bit and between riding sessions, checking out pyramids, and cruising on camels, he sent over a few photos of his Borato V3 with prototype Diller forks he built up before leaving. Check out some more photos and a parts list after the jump and expect to see some rad stuff from Jeff's trip real soon!

Jeff Kocsis has some rad clips in this Japanimal 2013 QSS 6 behind the scenes vid. Tyrone gives a quick shout out to Dillon Dillon Dillon at the end, too. Animal's QSS 6 drops Monday January 20th, get stoked.
Jeff Kocsis got back from a trip to Japan with Animal recently and just built up a new Borato V3 with a set of Blazer forks, Tabarnak bars, and Dubs rims. He's also been doing some indoor shredding now that the snow and cold is blowing through Jersey. Check out some more photos of his bike and another riding photo after the jump and be sure to check out the photo galleries from the Animal in Japan tour for more Jeff action here.
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.
Jeff and Silva flew out to Vancouver and met up with Taylor Elvy back in August for an Animal Bikes trip. They had a jam at the Chuck Bailey skatepark, cruised some streets, and even hit a swimming hole. Check out this video of their time out there. Sam Lowe even sneaks a clip in too.
Back in August Jeff visited BC for the first time, and his whole trip he was waiting to ride some historic Vancouver parks and snake runs, so on his last day we made it happen. He was quickly riding the place like he was a local and blasting tables and 270s all over the place. We thought we would get inside Jeff's head a bit more and did some word association with him. Check it out after the jump, along with some more photos shot by Zach Rampen. Bikes: BMX Travel: Forever Coffee: Dark New Jersey: Home Canada: My back up plan when US goes to shit Van: Homan.

Taylor going down with the ship, and with the rail/ledge feeble. When the crew are out and about and riding in Vancouver you can always count on Dave Scott being around to shoot a photo. He has gotten a number of shots with a lot of our team dudes, and lately he has been uploading some to his website. You can check out a few more after the jump, and visit his Open Liquor site for a bunch more. Silva with a nosebonk to icepick from his recent bike check.

The Come Up brings you more coverage from this weekend's Dew Tour. Jeff defines what 'real Jersey' is, and Nate Richter gets Kevin to drop soem tricks on demand.
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. How sick is Jeff's vertical pole jam above at 2:08? Don't forget that the contest will be live streamed online this weekend. More info here.
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.
