Dutchman Lars van der Haar makes good use of the annual cyclocross crossing to America. The 31-year-old rider of the Paloise Trek Lions delighted his main sponsor and claimed victory in the Trek Cup with the C1 Cross at Waterloo during the upcoming World Cup round.

By taking part in the Trek Cup, van der Haar not only wants to please his sponsor Trek, but is also a great study for the all-important meeting on Sunday. This is because the first World Cup of the season will also be played in the exact same round. Many toppers decided to save their legs on Sunday and did not participate.

The competition was closed for a long time, and in the last round a whole group was still fighting for the victory. But the speedy van der Haar created a small gap and flashed his European champion’s jersey with victory for the first time this season. Belgian Don Chute finished second by three seconds, with Frenchman David Menuet completing the podium. Toon Vandenbosch (4th), Thijs Aerts (6th), Lander Loockx (9th) and Tom Meeusen (10th) also entered the top 10.

On stage, van der Haar had to change his white jersey from the state of Wisconsin for an oversized red, ice hockey shirt. Local player Clara Honsinger won the women’s event. He held off Helene Clausel and Manon Baker.
