Tour de France prize money after 2 weeks in numbers

The winner of the General Classification at the 2019 Tour de France will walk home with €500000 prize money in the bank.

Apart from the pride of being a champion, the holder of the maillot jaune at the end of the Tour will also go home with nearly a quarter of the total €2.3m prize money on offer.

That’s a considerable sum, but it’s also a pittance compared to other sports. When Wimbledon concluded last weekend the winners of both the men’s and women’s singles took home a handy €2.6m each.

When you consider that tradition dictates the winner hands over his winnings to team-mates in recognition of their hard work, you start to understand what winning the fabled yellow jersey really means.

Winners of the green and polka dot jerseys – in the points and mountains classifications respectively – will each win €25,000 while the white jersey of the young classification takes home €20,000.

Jumbo-Visma currently top the table at the end of stage 15, with €83,830 after winning four stages so far. Lotto-Soudal are second, having earned €73,830, while Deceuninck – Quick-Step are a close third, with €72,360 so far.
