Ineos-Grenadiers has taken the victory of the team time trial in the third stage of the Tour of Britain. Ethan Hayter climbed to the top of the General Classification.

The third stage of the British competition was over an 18.2-kilometre circuit in the Welsh county of Carmarthenshire, between Llandeilo and the National Botanic Garden of Wales. Ineos-Grenadiers stopped the clock in 20 minutes and 22 seconds, being 17 seconds faster than Deceuninck-Quick-Step and 20 seconds faster than Jumbo-Visma.

With this result, Hayter climbed to the top of the General Classification, and where he's followed by his teammate Rohan Dennis, who is six minutes behind him. Jumbo-Visma's Wout van Aert sits in the third overall position, at 16 seconds from the Briton of Ineos-Grenadiers.

"All six riders gave everything, and we pulled off a really good team time trial, so that’s really satisfying," said Hayrer. "It was a tough, rolling course, and it hurt quite a lot! The key for us is to hold speed as best as possible, keep taking turns and keep it as efficient as possible Rohan and Kwiato are the most experienced team time trial riders in the team, and they really set us up and set the best example.

"It's going to be really hard racing for the remaining five stages and super tough to control too, as we saw on stage two. We’re going to be up against it, but it’s better to be ahead by 16 seconds instead of 16 seconds behind."
