What is Coventry Cycle Speedway?

We are a sports club based in Coventry, West Midlands. We race single speed bikes, with no brakes for four laps around an oval dirt track.

The sport of Cycle Speedway grew out of the bomb sites post second world war. The modern day version of the sport requires athleticism, bravery and skill, as four riders take to the track for each race, all trying to come out on top.

It is very much a short dirt track version of velodrome racing, except contact is allowed when passing.

Fancy a go?

Pop along to one of our coaching or race nights! See our full schedule on our coaching page.

SABRES HAVE TO SETTLE FOR THIRD

Coventry XL Motors Sabres have had to settle for third place in the Gold Cup, despite winning 6 out of 8 matches, the most of any team in the competition, including the double over champions Birmingham, who lost 4 matches.

Points difference decided the outcome, rather than league points and Birmingham had two cancelled matches by their opponents, meaning two 140-0 victories and the title after only winning just two of their 6 matches.

Leicester beat Coventry to second due to three matches not taking place, with two going in favour of the Monarchs.

All in all, a hugely disappointing end to the season but the Sabres have shown what they can do as they look forwards to 2019.

Coventry Cycle Speedway

ICYMI - Great final night at the Hearsall Common Bowl yesterday evening
🐯🐯🐯COVENTRY XL MOTORS SABRES WIN THRILLER

A vocal crowd enjoyed Coventry XL Motors Sabres wrapping up their season - and maybe the Gold Cup title depending on other results.

They defeated Birmingham Monarchs 108-92, with the Sabres delivering knockout blows in the final 5 junior and senior heats to increase their slender margin in a match which ebbed and flowed in both directions.

The match was a great spectacle for onlookers, all of whom gave the chilly night a real local derby atmosphere.

The Sabres must now wait to see if they’re outright winners or whether the title will go down to a playoff.
