Just been sent this from Matt at Raleigh, seems like Gracia has finally got his dream bike, its a pity he can't ride it for a month or two...

……He was walking by our stand on Saturday looking pretty sorry for himself with his newly smashed scaphoid from Friday night’s 4X, then his eyes lit up upon seeing our reproduction Super Tuff Burner with gold livery and genuine skyways. He admitted that it was one of his dream bikes from when he was a kid, and was more than happy to sit on it for a good half an hour or so whilst chatting to our staff and public alike. He was so taken with the bike that we ended up letting him take it home to convalesce with. He reckons it will now sit proud in his living room. Raleigh will release 500 of these limited reruns this autumn, but Cedric’s is the first sample of them. We’re glad to have cheered him up with it, but now need to get another in the country quick ready for the London show! Anyway, we all wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him strong on the bike next year.
