selecting vertices within a loop

Hello. Is there a way to select a limited amount of vertices within a loop?

When hitting Alt+Rmb you get the whole loop selected. What I would like (dearly) is to, say, select just two vertices within the loop, and then get all the loop vertices in the middle of these two, provided they belong to the same loop.

Anybody knows? Is it possible?
thnx
