British u23 Time Trial Championship 2022; Leo Hayter continues his golden run

-

Last Thursday, on the roads around Dumfries and along the beautiful Solway Firth Callum Thornley endorsed his potential, taking silver in the British u23 Time Trial Championship, beaten only by 2022 Baby Giro winner, Leo Hayter but leaving riders like Groupama FDJ big hitters Sam Watson and Lewis Askey in his wake.  

On the face of it, there’s little similarity between mountain biking and short distance time trials; but when you think about it; sustained big watts, only ‘micro’ recoveries – and pace judgement is vital, no point in being fastest to the one K to go banner.

The last time we spoke to Callum back in 2021 he’d crossed over from MTB to the road and time trials where he was knocking out 19 minute 10 mile time trials.
