Why would Carapaz sign a contract before the Giro, where he expected to be a contender? I don't see why this would be more likely than Sky, a team that is famous for throwing obscene amounts of money at everyone, throwing obscene amounts of money at him.

If Ineos offers him 1 point something mill, while he is on 150,000 or something on Movi and Ineos says now or never I'd be hard pressed to ignore it.

It could also be simply Ineos throwing obscene amount of money on everyone.

Expected to see Van der Poel in the top 20. I suppose he gets quite some money from Zwift and Specialised to be the face of these brands.

Evenepoel and Pogacar will probably be top 10 very soon.

As far as I know he gets a seven figure salary overall and is pretty much allowed to ride all the races he likes between RR, CX and XC MTB, that's an awesome deal.
PS: He gets the money from Canyon, not Specialized.
 
I had a huge laughing melt down..almost wet myself..I know that 2 US teams have an overall budget of $1.1 million dollars and the more "elite" team has a complete budget of $1.4..
I wish Justin Williams and possibly Corey post payments..the guy is @30..wears the Stars and stripes national champion jersey..wins weekly during the US season..
I would bet that the top 5 domestic U.S. Pros..have not made collective career earnings what Peter Sagan makes in a year..
And just because I don't..I will let someone else post what the top female American professional makes from contract wages..

From what i remember, the season before van Aert started to focus on the road, they both had roughly 1M from cyclocross. It's not clear if that was only for their contract, or if this included sponsorship deals and starting fees. Another thing that is not quite clear, is if these listed numbers in this top 20 are only for road racing. Maybe van der Poel has 3 different contracts, one for the money, two for the road, eh, i mean one for cyclocross, one for the road and one for mountainbike?

In any case, i'm pretty sure both van der Poel and van Aert earn more than 1.5M per year, including sponsorship deals and starting fees in cyclocross.

Pogacar is earning way more than i was expecting (not sure his current status justifies that number compared to others in the list). Looks like UAE is 100% convinced he will turn into a GT powerhouse in no time.
