The bi-annual Rubik's Cube European Speedcubing Championship is being held City of Roskilde, Denmark this weekend. Over 250 fast fingered potential winners will get together for a long weekend of cubing in this historic Viking City.

'A metaphor for clever, fun and frustrating, the Rubik's Cube continues to fascinate every new generation and 40 years since its creation, it is still hugely popular,' says Mike Townend, CEO Rubiks Brand

Not many people can claim to solve a Rubik's Cube, much less under 10 seconds. This competition is a gathering of Europe's elite where an astonishing 15 seconds to solve a Cube is cause for great disappointment. The winner is guaranteed to win with a sub 10 second solve.

After several elimination rounds its the finals and the tension mounts. Nerves kick in, hands shake, the crowd ooohs and aaahs. Favourites this year are UK, Dutch and German Champions.

A little bit of background to this incredible puzzle. The Rubik's Cube was invented by Professor Erno Rubik in Hungary and this year celebrates the 40th Anniversary of its creation. Since its worldwide launch it has achieved iconic status as the world's biggest selling toy ever - over 400 million pieces. With 43 quintillion different combinations and only one solution, solving it for most mere mortals is a feat in itself. Hints, tips and more information on all things Rubik can be found at
