Colnago Lars Boom Cyclocross

Lars has been Dutch Cyclocross champion since he was 16 and won the World champs in 2007. And this tricked-out Colnago is his race bike - it even has mud on the tyres. I'm not sure a radially spoked deep section carbon front wheel is everyone's idea of off road comfort, but the boy keeps on winning... perhaps he's just desperate to finish! <br clear="all />

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.
