STM32F3, SPI and L3GD20 communication problem

Hay! That's me with a problem, again! I am trying to communicate my gyro sensor on my discovery board via SPI interface. Firstly, as always, i was trying to do this all by myself with reference manual, but i failed. I checked for some help on the web and i found few libraries with code for the sensor. I changed my code, but still, i can't handle the transmission. I have no access to osciloscope at the moment so i can't check if there are any signals. Can you take a look on my code and tell me if everything's ok?

#include "stm32f30x.h"
#include "spi.h"
void SPI_setup()
    RCC->AHBENR |= RCC_AHBENR_GPIOEEN;              // Clock for GPIOE
    RCC->AHBENR |= RCC_AHBENR_GPIOAEN;              // Clock for GPIOA
    RCC->APB2ENR |= RCC_APB2ENR_SPI1EN;             // Clock for SPI
    // CS=PE3 pin configuration as output, push-pull, 50 MHz //
    GPIOE->MODER |= GPIO_MODER_MODER15_0            // LED PE15 as output
               | GPIO_MODER_MODER3_0              // PE3, CS pin as output
                 | GPIO_MODER_MODER14_0;            // LED PE14 as output
    GPIOE->OSPEEDR |= GPIO_OSPEEDER_OSPEEDR3;       // PE3 50 MHz speed
    // END CS configuration
    // MISO/MOSI/SCK=PA6/PA7/PA5 pin configuration as (MISO) input floating, (MOSI) alternate function pull-up, (SCK) alternate function pull-up
    GPIOA->MODER |= GPIO_MODER_MODER5_1             // PA5, SCK alternate function, push-pull
               | GPIO_MODER_MODER7_1;             // PA7, MOSI alternate function, push-pull
                                                    // PA6, MISO input floating (no pull-up, no pull down)
    GPIOA->OSPEEDR |= GPIO_OSPEEDER_OSPEEDR5        // PA5 50 MHz speed
                   | GPIO_OSPEEDER_OSPEEDR7;        // PA7 50 MHz speed
    GPIOA->AFR[0] |= (GPIO_AFRL_AFRL5 & (5<<4*5))   // PA5, SCK AF5
                  | (GPIO_AFRL_AFRL7 & (5<<4*7));   // PA7, MOSI AF5
    // END MISO/MOSI/SCK configuration
    // SPI configuration
    SPI1->CR1 |= SPI_CR1_BR_0
              | SPI_CR1_BR_1                        // Prescaler: 16, 72MHz/16= 4.5 MHz
              | SPI_CR1_MSTR                        // Master mode
          | SPI_CR1_SSM                         // CS software management
          | SPI_CR1_SSI;
    SPI1->CR2 |=SPI_CR2_DS_2
              | SPI_CR2_DS_1
                        | SPI_CR2_DS_0;                       // 8 bit data size
    SPI1->CR2 |= SPI_CR2_FRXTH;                     // RX interrupt is generated when FIFO is >= 8 bit
    SPI1->CR1 |= SPI_CR1_SPE;                       // SPI enable
uint8_t SPI_send(uint8_t byte, uint8_t mode, uint8_t continous)
    uint8_t rx_data;
    if (mode)
        byte |= 0x80;
    while(!(SPI1->SR & SPI_SR_TXE));
    SPI1->DR = byte;
    while(!(SPI1->SR & SPI_SR_RXNE));
    return rx_data;
#ifndef _SPI_H
#define _SPI_H
#define RW 1
#define W 0
#define cont 1
#define ncont 0
void SPI_setup(void);                         // Setups transmission
uint8_t SPI_send(uint8_t, uint8_t, uint8_t);  // Byte: byte to send, mode: RW- write-read, W- only write, cont: continous transfer
#include "stm32f30x.h"
#include "spi.h"
#include "usart_init.h"
#include <string.h>
void delay (int i)
    for (;i>0;i--);
int main ()
    char tab [8] = {0};
    uint8_t a;
    while (1)
        a=SPI_send(0x0F, RW, ncont);
        sprintf(tab, "%d", a);

According to gyro's datasheet i should receive 0b11010100 data- all i get is 0.
