Ethan Hayter discussion thread

Hayter and Pidcock are a similar riders. Trouble in the Ineos camp next year?

I suppose they both want to target the same races: Strade, Flanders, Amstel, Liege and some of the smaller stage races.
And add in Ben Tullett in a year or two. Ineos have a seriously good classics squad. Maybe they'll play multiple options like Quickstep rather than Jumbo and Alpecin.
To summarise the CN front page article - Ethan is happy to come 8th in the Worlds ITT since the course doesn't suit him and is longer than anything he's done before.
"I thought a top 10 would be really nice today so I'm very happy with that ride," Hayter said after finishing the race. "It's great to see Filippo has won, too. It's amazing.

"I would have preferred some climbs, obviously, being smaller than those guys. I prefer to punch over some climbs, being a bit more of a sprinter and track rider. Today I wasn't at 100 per cent, but sometimes that's good not to be super fresh for a time trial.

"I'm very happy with today. I could have improved in a few sections and obviously I didn't get to do a massive amount of time trial training in the end but I'm happy."
He hasn't looked at the World road race course yet.
"I've not actually looked at the course, to be honest," he said. "I've been so busy going to races. Now I have a whole week to do that."
For the rest of the season, he plans to ride the Italian autumn classics rather than aim for Paris-Roubaix, followed by the British National Championships, and possibly followed by the track World Championships - if the UK get an invite (they skipped qualifying events for some unknown reason).
"I think it's more likely that I go to Italy and do some one-day races there," Hayter said about his upcoming schedule. "I don't personally feel ready for Roubaix. You've got to be fully committed and at the moment I'm not sure. At the moment I'm going to Italy, and I really enjoy racing there."
