Team Ineos has announced the signing of World and European track champion Ethan Hayter.

The British rider will join the team with a three-year contract. The 21-year-old has not only enjoyed success in the track but also on the road as he took stage victories at the Baby Giro and the Tour de l'Avenir, as well as an overall win at A Travers Les Hauts de France at the U23 level.

Hayter will spend the start of the season preparing for the track events of Tokyo Olympics before focusing on the road. "It's the best place for me to begin my career as a professional road rider and the best place for me to be with the Olympics coming up next year too," he explained. "This team has lots of riders for me to take inspiration from and there's so much young talent in the team as this season has shown.

"As well as Egan, Pavel and Tao receiving chances at the Grand Tours, there's other young riders such as Chris Lawless - who was someone I was racing against at under 23 level not long ago - winning Tour de Yorkshire, so there's plenty of different paths to follow."

Ineos' Team Principal Sir Dave Brailsford reacted to this signing. "Ethan is an exciting, young rider who has already had significant success at a more junior level," he commented. "His signing is a further commitment to our long term-future as Team Ineos.

"We now have a really exciting group of young riders who all have the chance to compete and train with more senior and experienced teammates – and who can learn from them what it takes to win. Ethan is at a key stage of his professional development and we are all excited about what lies ahead for him as part of the Team."
