Because Alberto Contador alone makes about 5 times as much as the best paid Argos rider?

And that's because other Italian teams are already lined up as wild cards?

no. That's because if afterwards Saxo gets invited by Aso the lineup Riis would send to Italy will be utter crap.

It's prob even more.

How much does Contador make btw? I'm assuming specialized pays a lot of his paycheck. Excluding everything else, how much does Saxo/Specialized pay him a year?

5 million euro?

Last thing I saw was 3.5 million after the ban on some danish news site supposedly it was more but because he can't earn points he agreed with a lower salary.

I read he had 3,5million in 2012 cos of ban,but from 2013-2015 it stretches to 6 million euros.It was in the time Tinkov became sponsor,in russian newspapers...Still it sucks,Lance had 12 million dollars
