Might ask what ti stuff runs locally just to see how unobtanium it all is.
Rusty reports that the list price for the T5 was 100,000 GBP.

Let's say that's the price for this bike (for conversation's sake). That's not an impossible sum for Bos, the Dutch team, and Bos' sponsors to come up with. Unlikely? Yes. Impossible? No.

It would be an incredible feat of gamesmanship and would rattle the cages of the GB sprinters.
