In the second of our vids of our favourite things from Eurobike, Vecchiojo gets misty eyed about his "favouritest" bike at the show. The carbon cyclocross bike ridden by Rabobank's Lars Boom the current Dutch national cyclocross champion and the world cyclocross champion back in 2008.
It certainly is a mud-plugging thing of awe and wonder… as you'll find out if you click play and let Jo explain…
If the sight of Lars' bike has whetted your appetite for more cross bikes loveliness check out our Eurobike bike cyclocross galleries helpfully titled Cyclocross bikes 1 and Cylocross bikes 2, we tried to think of something more imaginative, but there you go. We've added a fair few pics to that last one recently too.
