After a month's break our speedway podcast is back.

Home Straight – brought to you by the Eastern Daily Press and hosted by one of their sports reporters Gavin Caney – is a fortnightly offering, which had just enjoyed a summer break, for fans of the high-drama two-wheel motorsport

Here is the seventh chance to listen to Caney and his high-profile co-hosts Olly Allen and Simon Stead, who are joined by special guest, Danish rider Kenneth Bjerre.

In their latest offering, Olly takes a 'Trip Down Memory Lane', Steady and his compatriot learn their latest challenge during a season-long competition between the duo while the panel also discuss a host of burning topics – namely the forthcoming World Cup, which starts tomorrow.

Recently retired rider Allen is the manager of the BSPA-backed national Poultec Speedway Training Programme and lifelong friend of Sheffield Tigers captain, Team GB international and guest Sky Sports pundit Stead.
