SKINS code GIRO100 20% off

The largest monetary reward in Tour de France history is on offer to this year’s cyclists, with €500,000 from a €2,295,850 prize money pool is paid out to the overall winner.

The Tour has increased its winners’ reward for the first time this decade, boosting the total take home by €50,000 from €450,000. As well as dishing out rewards to racers based on their overall classification, prize money is awarded after each stage when a winner will receive €11,000.

Largely thanks to the heroics of Chris Froome who won the Tour for a second time, Team Sky earned a total of €556,630 last year. Froome himself was paid the bumper €450,000 prize, but prize money earned by racers is usually shared amongst the team who help lift them to the podium.

After 16 stages at the 2016 edition, Tinkoff are surging away at the top of the prize money leaderboard with €87,850, while Cannondale-Drapac are at the bottom of the list with a measly €5,720 in winnings. Jonathan Vaughters’ team has managed just two top-10 stage finishes in the race, both on stage 15 with Pierre Rolland and Tom Jelte-Slagter.
