BBox Bouygues Telecom's strong performance at the Tour de France has been underlined as race organisers announced that the French team has claimed the most prize money in the first nine stages.

The team went into the first rest day of the Tour having taken two stage wins through Thomas Voeckler and Pierrick Fedrigo on stages five and nine, respectively. Their attacking style has seen the team net themselves 31,650 euros in prize money.

Columbia-HTC sit second on the prize list with 28,460 euros amassed so far, due primarily to Mark Cavendish's two stage wins and five stages in the green jersey.

At the other end of the spectrum is Silence-Lotto who have claimed just 3,110 euros in the first nine days of the Tour de France.

While each squad has its own policy, prize money earned will generally be divided between all members of the team, including support staff, at the conclusion of the Tour.

Here is a list of prize money earned by each team in the Tour de France after the first nine stages:
