A special race calls for a true Dream Build! Every year, fans anticipate the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships – and it’s not just the racing. As is tradition, every rider gets a custom painted bike and we had the chance to go behind the scenes to see what two-time world champion Danny Hart would be getting his hands on in Mont Sainte Anne.

The process brings to life a set of designs with a complete respray and painstaking decal application, before the bike is built ready to race for the rainbow bands on Sunday.
