Team Giant-Alpecin’s Lars van der Haar (NED) continues his cyclocross calendar this November with another busy month of DVV Verzekeringen Trofee, Hansgrohe Superprestige and UCI World Cup races.
With one victory at Nacht van Woerden, fourth place in Zonhoven; sixth in Ronse; seventh in Valkenburg, tenth in Gieten, and seventh in yesterday’s European Championships, the first month of competition for van der Haar can be described as a solid start to his CX season.
“October has been a challenging month, however we have seen an upward trend in my performances,” said van der Haar. “Now I am starting to regain full fitness and working progressively towards my previous level. I have had some decent results this month and it felt really good to finally win again in Woerden. November is going to be an exciting yet difficult month, starting this Tuesday with Oudenaarde, followed by some important races in the World Cup and Superprestige, where I will be aiming for some positive results. The aim is to keep on improving my condition and I hope I can target race results and podium finishes.”
