What a year it's been for Adam Brayton, he smashed his first ever podium in Fort William, grabbed a handful of top tens and, to top it off, got selected for the World Championships for the first time.

The Keswick kestrel will be making his debut on the biggest stage in downhill in style thanks to the guys at Hope who have crafted this gorgeous Union Jack themed Gambler.

It's refreshing to see Brayton so excited about being able to represent his country, as opposed to just taking it for granted. Here's what he had to say: "What more can I say, there isn’t much to say other than its the most meaningful moment in my career – added to the fact that we have the best looking bike in the pits! Words can’t describe how proud I am. We haven’t done bad considering we are one of the smallest teams in the pits. Hard work pays off."

Look at the split cranks, the details on the rotors, the graphics on the calipers - there's no one in the world that does customisation quite like Hope. Enough talking though, let's get into the gorgeous details:
