While many pro riders will be adjusting their schedules this year to accommodate the Olympics around their usual road calendar, Brit Ethan Hayter is waiting to begin life in the professional peloton until after the 2020 Tokyo Games.

The 21-year-old signed a three-year contract with Ineos in November but won't be focusing on road racing until after this summer as he wants to win three gold medals in Japan, a small feat that would lift him up to being the 15th most successful British Olympian of all-time.

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.
