Did you know these celebrities were Raleigh Burner fans ?

Guess our celebrity Raleigh Burner Fans

 

As part of our build up to the launch of the limited edition Super Tuff Burner we're bringing you all things burner related!  So we thought we'd have a little fun and let you test your knowledge of our celebrity burner fans.

See how many of these celebs you can guess and let us know if there's anyone we missed!

1. Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver Raleigh Burner Fan

The UK's most loved Chef

As the UK's most loved Chef we're sure you'll have heard of Jamie Oliver before!  With a TV career of almost 20 years behind him as well as an extensive number of bestselling cook books under his belt you'd need to have spend the last two decades under a rock not to have heard of him.  But did you know that he was a Raleigh burner fan?  Well, in fact, as a post on his Instagram account shows he's quite the collector.  His Raleigh collection also includes a Raleigh Boxer and Raleigh Grifter alongside his Superfly and Team Burners.  It certainly seems that the chef is into the old school cool - who knew!

2. Keith Lemon

Through t'keyhole!

Turns out our favourite bleach-blonde, super-tanned Yorkshire man is a pretty big Raleigh fan too!  Juggling his time between the many prime time TV shows including Celebrity Juice, Through the Keyhole and The Keith & Paddy Picture Show must leave Keith little time left to himself.

But despite a hectic schedule it seems good old Lemon still loves his Burner and finds a little spare time to bomb about with his BMX pals.  If we were guessing we'd say the crude jokes are probably also a key element of those rides too... OOOoosh!

Let the hanky see the panky...

Comedian and television presenter Paddy McGuinness is best known for his roles in Phoenix Nights, Take Me Out and The Keith & Paddy Picture Show.  Plus hes a family man; a married father of three - which sounds like a pretty busy schedule if you ask us!  But it seems he still has space in his life for a love of Raleigh Burners.

Pictured below is his beautiful Team Burner, we think a shiny new Super Tuff will go nicely in his collection and maybe he'll join Keith's BMX gang!

4. Jamie Bestwick

Our local BMX gold medalist

Nottingham-born Jame Bestwick has been riding BMXs since he was only 10 years old.  The 13-time X-GAMES Gold BMX Vert winner became an unbeatable force to be reckoned with, racking up gold medals 9 years in a row before taking silver in 2015.

Late last summer Jamie called in to Raleigh HQ while he was back in the UK.  Jamie admitted he'd always lusted after the Raleigh Team Aero Pro Burner as teenager and was stoked to see the original survivor we keep at Raleigh HQ.  It goes to show no matter who you are, everybody loves the iconic Burner!

5. Andy Ruffell

The original Raleigh Burner Team rider

Now if you're a true Raleigh Burner fan, or even just a BMX fan in general you should have guessed that Andy Ruffell would be on this list!  Part of the original Raleigh Team who made the Team Burner so iconic Andy has been an icon for many children of the 80's.

Since giving up pro BMX-ing Mr Ruffell has turned his hand to creating and producing more than 18 world-class televised award shows.  Plus over 50 additional events, TV and video projects around the world.  We spotted our 35th Anniversary team model on his social pages pictured by one of his friends.  Once a BMXer always a BMXer...

Leaving Las Vegas. Awesome day of full on Redneck road trippery. Thanks Ruffell for the guide and the ride on your £1000 kid's bike! Luv ya Old Man! 😉
