Crashes upset Ethan Hayter's ride in the Worlds road race, thwarting his attempt to get into a move towards the business end of proceedings. But as the only other British finisher alongside Tom Pidcock he can be happy with his efforts as GB secured a top 10 finish.

"It was a tough race obviously, I got caught up in a bit of trouble partly from my fault, partly unlucky, but no it was a good race," Hayter said after the finish.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
