Ethan Hayter (Ineos) won the elite men’s road race at the British Championships after seeing off the challenges of Lewis Askey (Groupama-FDJ) and Max Walker (Astana-Qazaqstan) on the stiff climb of Saltburn Bank.

After an aggressive opening to the race had reduced the front group to just fifteen or so riders, the winning move began to take shape with a little over 50km remaining, when Hayter, Askey and Walker went clear in the company of Jake Stewart (Israel-Premier Tech) and Bob Donaldson (Trinity Racing), with Connor Swift (Ineos) and Joseph Blackmore joining them at the beginning of the penultimate lap.
