Lars van der Haar is a possible starter for the next round of the UCI World Cup in Heusden-Zolder, according to Dutch coach Gerben de Knegt.

De Knegt said that he is holding a spot for van der Haar for the race next Monday, Boxing Day, but is yet to determine if he is able to take the start.

“On Friday it will be clear if Lars will actually start,” De Knegt said.

The former Dutch champion delayed the start of his season due a hamstring injury and has been sidelined for much of the season after he re-injured it.

If van der Haar does take the start it will be a strong Dutch squad, with Lars Boom also making a return to World Cup racing.
