One team walked away from the Tour de France with almost €600,000 in prize money, while one only picked up €14,100

Team Sky’s prize money kitty was boosted to the sum of almost €600,000 thanks to Chris Froome‘s overall win at the Tour de France.

The British team topped the prize money list yet again by sealing top spot on the podium, head and shoulders above Ag2r La Mondiale and Movistar in second and third.

Froome’s €500,000 prize for winning the race certainly helped Sky to the top of the list, with Romain Bardet in second netting €200,000 and Nairo Quintana getting €100,000 for Movistar’s fund.

Prize money is usually paid at the end of the season by Tour organiser ASO and it is traditional for it to be shared out between all the members of the team, including those behind the scenes.

It’ll be a small payday for the Cannondale-Drapac riders and staff, though, who only have €14,100 to share between them, the least of any team by over €6,000.
