Hold the bells! We might have another one to add to the ‘incredible young riders set to lead the next generation’ list. Wout van Aert, Mathieu van der Poel and Tadej Pogačar were the three twentysomethings seemingly untouchable in that category before Tom Pidcock added his name with his Spring Classics performances. Now Ethan Hayter has made his bid to be added. Coming second at the Tour of Britain doesn’t gain anyone automatic addition, but going mana-a-mano with van Aert and beating Julian Alaphilippe suggests his name could be added soon. And take a look through all Hayter’s 2021 results. In a year when he has focused on the team pursuit, an event just 4,000 metres in length, he has ridden six stage races, won one, come second in two others and…

hayter enters world’s elite as he’s pipped by van aert

Ethan Hayter put himself at cycling’s top table with an impressive performance at the Tour of Britain that saw him only beaten to overall victory by Wout van Aert in the final metres. The Jumbo-Visma leader was level with Hayter as the pair opened their decisive final sprint in the knowledge that whoever won was likely to take the overall title due to the bonus seconds on the line. But the Londoner was overpowered by the Belgian, who found his way through the pack to claim the stage victory as well. Van Aert said: “It’s fantastic to win the general classification as well as the stage. On the line, I saw that Ethan was not on the front row. It’s nice that it went exactly in the right direction today.” There was no…

hayter secures worlds slot

The day after the Tour of Britain finished, Hayter was named among the British squad for the upcoming road World Championships in Leuven, Belgium. He will form part of a strong elite men’s road race team and will also ride the time trial. British Cycling performance director Stephen Park said: “It will be interesting to see how the elite men’s road race plays out. We’ve made the decision not to go with one team leader, giving us a number of options as the race plays out. The race really could belong to anyone.” Hayter added: “We’ve got a good team for the road race so it’s going to be fun I think.” The wider squad contains medal prospects in multiple categories including Lizzie Deignan in the women’s road race and the flying Zoe Bäckstedt…

tour of britain tests ribble’s mettle

Ribble-Weldtite battled valiantly against mechanicals and crashes to make James Shaw the best-placed rider of the Tour of Britain’s Continental teams. The squad had a tough opening two stages, with four riders crashing and one suffering from stomach issues. They had pinned hopes on a strong ride in stage three’s team time trial. Manager Colin Sturgess was confident the squad could place on the podium, while rider, aerodynamicist and WattShop owner Dan Bigham even felt a win was possible, but it wasn’t to be. Powerhouse rider Simon Wilson suffered a break in his chain within the first few minutes and was swiftly left behind. They struggled home in eighth Then, the next day, Matt Gibson used his prodigious power to drag James Shaw, who is set to return to the WorldTour for…

scott’s double jersey ride

Canyon-dhb-Sungod rider Jacob Scott compared most of the stages of the Tour of Britain to a team time trial, as he claimed the race’s King of the Mountains jersey and the points jersey in Aberdeen. The Oldham native said: “My jersey collection is getting quite good this year. I’ve had a national jersey in the cross-country marathon championships [mtb], I got the KOM jersey at Lancaster and I’ve currently got the National Road Series jersey, which is a goal for the end of the year – there’s one more round of that.” Speaking ahead of the race’s fifth stage he said: “I feel like I’ve done four team time trials so far. I don’t think we’ve ever been over a group of six either.” He was in the break again the following…
