Chris Froome's €450,000 prize money boosts Team Sky to the top of the money list from the 2015 Tour de France
Chris Froome’s overall win at the 2015 Tour de France saw Team Sky top the race’s prize money list, with Froome picking up €450,000 himself.
Sky’s haul from the three week race stood at €556,630, with Movistar trailing in second with €442,080. The British team’s prize money was augmented thanks to Froome’s stage 10 victory and his mountains classification win, adding an extra €33,000 to the kitty.
At the other end of the spectrum Orica-GreenEdge propped up the table with just over €10,000 earned over the course of the three weeks. The Australian team’s hopes were dashed early as three riders pulled out of the race in the first week.
Wildcards MTN-Qhubeka won more money than seven WorldTour teams, finishing tenth in the table with €52,400 earned.
It was an overwhelmingly successful Tour for the African team, picking up a stage win, seven top-five finishes, 13th overall in the GC with Serge Pauwels and four days in the polka dot jersey with Daniel Teklehaimanot.
