The Dutchman achieved gold in the H4 road race and H4 time trial last time out.

Britain's two-time Paralympic silver medallist Finlay Graham could also make the podium in the MC3 category while The Netherlands' Tristan Bangma and pilot Patrick Bos could be within tile contention for the men’s tandem MB category.

Bangma is undefeated so far this season having topped the first and second rounds of the World Cup series as well as claiming European golds.

The men's and women's time trials are scheduled to dominate the first two days of the championships, with the H1-5 relay also taking place on the second day.

The road races will take centre stage for the next two days.

Baie-Comeau 2022 is due to be staged between August 11 and 14.
