not very much. there is very few pro mountain bikers who can live off of what they make from racing/competing. most have some kind of job (usually something too do with biking). it isn't like baseball where you get payed 47 million to hit a few balls.

haha, dont chirp baseball, one of the greatest sports known to man kindDead Horse

Don't forget, the hardest thing to do by far in any sport is hit a baseball. There are sports that can be overall harder than baseball, I bet downhill biking is harder because you have to constantly be enganged to what you're doing, baseball not so much. But nothing is harder than hitting a baseball.

Most probably get paid the same as Canadian Rock Stars or Canadian Football Stars. Most Canadian National Heroes need to keep day jobs.

It could also depend on how many sponsors they have. Eg. Sam hill now has CRC AND PayPal!!!!

The pro riders who are sponsored make allot of money but what they actually take home is not allot. because the team deducts the cost of travel, lodge, food etc from their pay. for example if riders makes 200k$ a year they might take home only 20k. like most things the bulk of the income comes from advertising for brands and merchandizing.

Thats like saying how long is a peace of string.

Or, like how long you didn’t pay attention to basic spelling courses in school……
