Belgian cyclist Tom Van Asbroeck may miss the two Canadian WorldTour races after forgetting his passport on a train in France.

The LottoNL-Jumbo rider forgot his bag on a train in the south of France and as such lost his passport, cycling shoes and other possessions.

Van Asbroeck was scheduled to take part in the upcoming GP de Montreal and the GP de Quebec but now depends on the possibility of obtaining an emergency passport. With the first of the two races taking place on Friday, time is beginning to run out for the rider.

The Dutch formation had selected Van Asbroeck as one of its key riders for the Canadian events. "If the race remains closed, Moreno Hofland and Tom van Asbroeck may go for the sprint," team manager Nico Verhoeven said earlier this week.

The main focus for LottoNL-Jumbo continues to be Wilco Kelderman, who finished 32nd in the Tour de France after a crash in the early stages but may do well on the hilly routes of Montreal and Quebec.
