Tour prizemoney

Discovery Channel has earned over half a million euro in the Tour de France (€545,640), of which €400,000 was the prize for the overall winner Lance Armstrong. Last year they earned a little more: €578.842.

Euskaltel only managed to collect €9.310 in prize money. If one knows it's a common rule to give 10% of the earnings to the staff, the riders earned a meagre 931 euro each for three weeks of hard labour.
