Cycle speedway was born on the bomb sites of post-war Europe where thrill-seekers raced each other around dirt tracks on steel bikes with no gears or brakes.
Fast forward half a century, and while the bikes and rules haven't changed much, there's a new generation of riders helping to revive this niche type of cycling.
Cycle speedway is a form of bicycle racing on short oval dirt tracks, usually outdoors, occasionally indoors, typically 70–90 metres long. Like motorcycle speedway, riders use machines without brakes or multiple gears but, unlike motor speedway, the object is not to slide bikes round the turns.
