Not necessarily as one can have a professional approach or mindset without receiving direct income.

Riders on UCI WT and PC teams are not on a salary. They are independent contractors and what they do or don't do is outlined in their contract.

So if they aren't happy they can potentially sue under the contractual remedies law that might apply in the jurisdiction probably of the UCI licence holder.

I am surprised you have these expectations as I understand that most NRS riders in Australia are not paid yet they, and the media, often refer to themselves as professionals.

I wonder how much Wes Selzberger is being paid next year by his new team and what the other riders who get nothing will be thinking!
what about Bernie?
