Now a fixture on Cardiff's enviable list of major sporting events, the FIM British Speedway Grand Prix returns to the capital this summer.  Held at the Millennium Stadium since 2001 the Grand Prix sees some of the world's best speedway riders go head to head.

Marvel as four riders at a time, tear around the stadium's 278 meter long track four times aiming to be the one to cross the line first.  What's all the more surprising (for speedway novices like me) is that these bikes only have one gear and more alarmingly no brakes.  Hold on tight!!!
