Hayter avoids teammate’s crash to reclaim Tour of Britain lead



Ethan Hayter (Ineos Grenadiers) survived a late scare on stage 5, capitalising on a split in the peloton to win a close-fought sprint and reclaim the race lead at the Tour of Britain.

A fall for Hayter’s teammate Owain Doull on the final corner meant a number of sprinters were caught out and distanced but Hayter, who came into the stage just two seconds behind race leader Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma), narrowly avoided the fall and then made use of an excellent final leadout from Michal Kwiatkowski. Hayter took the win and, as a result of bonus seconds, now leads van Aert by eight seconds with three days remaining in the race.
