cashing! for the GC guys

$$$ for the GC guys

Okay, I was curious and looked a bit closer at the prize awards for the ‘cashtastic’ Alexian Brothers Tour of Elk Grove and here’s the breakdown, per team, taking into account stage and final standings. I do not have the information about the $3,200 race primes given out on Saturday.

No surprise, that OUCH p/b Maxxis comes out on top as Karl Menzies took the overall, the team made $35,200 or $210 per mile raced (or $66 per turn – okay I might have gotten carried away). Interestingly, BMC comes out on top on the $$ per rider with $4,668 (assuming start list was correct).

OUCH-Maxxis $35,200
BMC $32,675
BISSELL $18,300
Colavita/Sutter Home $17,875
Fly V Australia $13,150
Kelly Benefit Strategies $9,700
