Cycling Britain Finds New Teenage Flyer In Omnium Champion Hayter

GLASGOW – Britain’s production line of remarkable cycling talent appears to have delivered another diamond after teenager Ethan Hayter won the omnium title in brilliant fashion in the European Championship track events on Saturday.

The 19-year-old won the four-event, day-long test devised to find the top track all-rounder, roaring from fifth place going into the final discipline, the 25km points race, to the gold-medal position, much to the delight of the home crowd.

“I can’t believe it to be honest,” said the Londoner, who beat Italy’s Olympic omnium champion Elia Viviani in the process of taking his first senior gold medal just 24 hours after winning bronze in the team pursuit.
