Despite a difficult season, newly crowned British U23 time trial champion Leo Hayter has ended 2021 on a high. A brilliant solo victory in the U23 version of Liège-Baston-Liège in September marked a career high point for the young Londoner, and it was followed with further success, including a stage win at the Tour de Bretagne.

Although he has no record of success in time trialling, Hayter also took victory at last week's British National Championships with an impressive gap of 53 seconds to second place.
