The INRNG on prize money in cycling

by CyclingTips

The INRNG has a very interesting analysis about prize money in cycling and how the gross figure is very, very different to what is eventually handed out to a team [which is then further divided up between riders].

Here’s a short excerpt:

Let’s imagine €10,000 for first place. Never mind which race, it’s just a big fat round figure to use as an example.

– 7% is automatically deducted to fund the CPA rider’s union (covered in more detail here) so we’re down to €9,300
– 2% is deducted to fund the CADF, the UCI’s anti-doping body and both these two deductions are formal and part of the UCI rules. We’re down to €9,100.

And there’s a lot more deducted after that. Click here to read the full analysis.
