PIRATES star Adam Ellis has swapped his speedway equipment for a push bike, as he looks to raise money for the Grace Kelly Childhood Cancer Trust.

The Team GB racer will cycle the mammoth distance of 500km to help raise awareness and funding for the charity.

Ellis is set to begin the challenge on Monday and complete over five days.

At the time of writing, he had raised £560, with a target set of £2,000 in total.
