So how much does a cyclist make riding around France for three weeks on the Tour de France?
That really depends on how well the rider's team does.
Last year a total of about 3.2 million Euros was awarded during the tour.
Team CSC Saxo Bank won the most with a total of €621,210.
"By tradition, a team's winnings were pooled and shared among the riders and support team," according to Wikipedia.
That means that last year every rider on the CSC Saxo Bank team made about €69,00 Euros or about $100,00 dollars at todays excahnge rates plus whatever they get paid for riding for the team.
