How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@hamncheez: saying it isn’t a thing doesn’t dismiss it being a thing. The bureau of labor statistics seems to conflict starkly with your opinions and I just did a quick google search to find their numbers. I don’t get paid to understand those things nor am I an economist. As far as what you get with sponsorship, 2020 is a great example of still getting something for paying athletes. For every Danny hart post, I saw twenty Emily batty posts. Which sponsor got their money’s worth. Pink bike’s survey would be better to split up the “what my sponsors care about” by gender. Gwin is fast and all, but I’m not buying Kenda any time soon. Being fast is not the be all end all. Be there. When you wake up and scroll… be there. When you take a dump… be there. When you go to sleep and death scroll…. Be there. For better or worse, I’m only one thumb flip away from Batty’s sponsors being seen by my eyeballs and in this Facebook day in age that means more than any race win if I were a sponsor.

Actually surprisingly to see the 80cents to the dollar wage discrepancy hold up so well in the sponsorship world. I would have though it would have been a bigger gap. *baseline personal view is that there shouldn’t be a gap

Good news. 0-5000 you’re almost as sponsored as most. Go get a hookit profile and a discount and you’ll likely be doing just as well

Amateur Downhill & Enduro Racer Banned for 4 Years for Using or Possessing 10 Banned Substances
“What’d you do today honey?” “Busted some heads and got em kicked out of racing” “Really?” “Yea, 52yr old cat 5 racer, won’t race ever again... for four years” “Well the worlds a better place” I bet more money was spent researching and filing paper work than was lost on entry fees.

@ryanbouma: it’s actually about 3 million drops in a standard bucket. About 1 million per gallon. 250,000 per liter so you’re welcome for the conversion. “Importing crap” from overseas has a negative tone to it. So my thought you were referencing overall quality is a correct inference. Questionable labor and environmental policy is a similar vein. The thought that some how by doing it here you are doing it better just makes me shake my head especially after stating that you’d be concerned that they’d cut corners on cost. Sort of confirming what I’m saying. Doesn’t matter where your bike is from when the vast majority of your purchase comes from non-domestic suppliers. Sure you put $300 of margin into devinci’s pocket but you also put more into Component suppliers not made there. I bet the Devinci worker appreciates a job as much as the next guy, but I bet they’d fall upwards into a more lucrative career path welding something other than bicycle frames. Just a hunch.

@ryanbouma: I mean vote with your dollars is fine and all, but bikes are a drop in the bucket. Buy what makes you happy and you’ll be able to justify why, cost or source country. I do not agree that it’s fair to say that just because it’s made overseas it is of a lower quality. You are welcome to be proud your bike is made in your homeland but don’t assume local means the best quality
