World championships is all about custom bikes and kit. Okay, there’s also some racing in there. But the teams go all-out for this one-and-done race. Maybe it gives riders that extra boost to get a good result. Maybe it’s just really fun to design custom graphics and worlds is a great excuse. Either way, the bikes look great.
