The Tour de France‘s yellow jersey is perhaps one of the most iconic prizes in the sporting world.
But the winner of cycling’s biggest prize doesn’t just bag himself the fabled maillot jaune – the Tour de France is big business and the prize money reflects that.
There’s financial reward up for grabs for stage winners, classification leaders and, in fact, every rider who finishes the three-week race.
And riders can also bag bonifications on the biggest climbs too – with last year’s race seeing more than €2,000,000 handed out.
This year’s prize pot has increased too, with more on offer than ever before for the GC winner.
So, besides personal glory and a place in sporting legend, what else is up for grabs at the Tour? Here’s the full breakdown of the Tour de France prize money on offer.
