An Olympic medal and nine pro victories for one, and an U23 Liège-Bastogne-Liège title for the other - the Hayters have had many special days during the 2021 cycling season.

The photos that adorn the family mantlepiece must surely be in constant change, and October 14 will provide another keeper: both Ethan and Leo standing side-by-side in their red, white and blue stripes as national time trial champions. Ethan as the elite victor, and Leo as the U23 winner. Two brothers, two gold medals.
