Ineos Grenadiers’ Ethan Hayter will aim to win his third national title in under a week when he lines up of the men’s road race at the British national championships in Lincoln on Sunday. 

Hayter won both the time trial and the circuit titles earlier this week and heads into the race alongside Ineos Grenadiers teammate and defending champion Ben Swift, and Owain Doull.

The last British road championships were held in 2019, with last year’s event cancelled due to COVID-19. This year’s championships were moved from their usual June slot to this week and a strong line-up is expected for the men’s race with Mark Cavendish also on the start line.
