Britain’s Ethan Hayter won the Tour of Poland after Arnaud Demare claimed the seventh and final stage on Friday.

Ineos Grenadiers’ Hayter, 23, had taken the leader’s yellow jersey on Thursday’s penultimate stage.

Frenchman Demare, of Groupama-FDJ, claimed a fifth stage win this season with a sprint finish into Krakow.

Dutchman Olav Kooij finished second and Phil Bauhaus of Germany came third, while Hayter finished tucked inside the peloton to win by 11 seconds overall.

The win is the first WorldTour overall victory of Hayter’s career, as he becomes the sixth active British rider to have won at this level, joining Tao Geoghegan Hart, Geraint Thomas, Chris Froome, Adam Yates and Simon Yates.

Dutchman Thymen Arensman finished second in the general classification and Spain’s Pello Bilbao third, 18 seconds behind the Briton.

Hayter’s compatriot and Ineos Grenadiers team-mate Ben Tulett finished fifth overall.
