Ethan Hayter defends British time trial title

Ethan Hayter (Ineos Grenadiers) defended his elite men’s title in the time trial at the British national championships on Thursday in Dumfries. His winning time of 50:52 across the 44.2km course was 1:14 better than Dan Bigham, who took the silver medal. Finishing another 17 seconds back was James Shaw (EF Education-EasyPost) in third.

It was a repeat of the podium from last year, with the 23-year-old Hayter celebrating a day after his younger brother Leo replicated his U23 time trial victory.

“It’s really nice to defend my national title and I’m looking forward to wearing these stripes in Europe. We’ve been pretty lucky with the weather today – perfect weather for a time-trial. Hopefully I’ll win the road race on Sunday, but I’ve got both Bens with me [Tulett and Turner] and they’re both really strong, so we’ll see.”
