How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
What the are worth and what is paid are two different metrics. Privateers or amateurs would never pay that much out of pocket for kit. Also what sponsors give you is often taken back at the end of the season.

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@roggey: teams or riders do not get any of the tv rights directly if at all. Only through start fees etc. I was saying what the minimum guaranteed wages are. Pay often doesn't go with results, and the prize money is quite high as well (as a domestique you can make up to 10-60K in a a single grand tour). Further all the prize money gets put into a closed bank account and gets distributed at the end of the year.

5 Key Stats from Downhill Racers in the Pinkbike State of the Sport Survey
The top two categories in the mens have guaranteed minimum wages, and then you have many teams with zero people on minimum wage. In Proteams the minimum is roughly 30K euros and 50K euros in the worldtour. In both of these levels there are riders making millions however but also teams acting shady. In the third tier teams it is a free for all based on where the team is registered. For instance France forces minimum wage requirements for tier three, whereas in other countries, especially outside of the established cycling countries it is a free for all or even worse, pay to race.

I think the way to go from this point forth is profit sharing from broadcast rights. I wouldn't know how to structure this but as soon as more stabilised profit income can go into the sport, the more money the riders can see.

there are guaranteed wages in the pro peleton's two top categories. Its c.30K for Proteams and c.50k euros for Worldtour teams. Teams have to put up a bank guarantee at the beginning of the year that they cant touch, and if they default the riders get paid from the guarantee. there are roughly 25 riders over a million. With Sagan and Froome top earners.

That doesn't follow. They ride those bikes for their employer if they had to pay for themselves i hardly doubt that they would use 25k worth of bikes. Also you never own all of em. I don't know how it is in the US but in principle the labor culture and the laws here in Europe is that your employer gives you the tools for the trade.
