How much money did the teams win at the Vuelta and which cyclist won the most?


These are the teams and cyclists who earn the most money when the race is over. 78th edition of the Vuelta. Amounts that do not go directly into the pockets of the cyclists who ‘raised the most’, because, although each formation has its own manual of conduct, the profits are generally distributed among all the members of the teams.



Sepp Kuss

There are no surprises in this matter. The great dominator of the Vuelta won 364,985 euros, just remember that they were the best team, that they got the last podium or they won five of the 21 stages. From Jumbo-Visma, the one who earned the most money was champion Sepp Kuss (180,750 euros), followed by Jonas Vingegaard (103,505 euros) and Primoz Roglic, 62,400 euros.




Remco Evenepoel

In the classification of the best team, they did not finish in the second position, but they got in the income ranking, with a total of 98,965. Most of this money was earned with his determination and sweat by the Belgian Remco Evenepoel (88,660 euros), which is more than the second cyclist of the Belgian team who earned the most money in the Vuelta, Mattia Cattaneo, 2,910 euros.




Juan Ayuso

In third place appears the formation of the Arab Emirates, with 95,530 euros. The rider with the biggest contribution to this amount is Juan Ayuso, 4th place in the Vuelta, with 37,645 euros, followed by Joao Almeida (13,390) and Marc Soler (11,200).




Wout Poels

They finished second in the team classification in terms of sports performance, but they finished fourth in the ranking of earnings, with 80,245 euros, with Dutchman Wout Poels earning the most of the team ( 21,275 euros), when perhaps someone might think that this privilege could be for Mikel Landa, but Alavés pocketed 18,690 euros, ahead of Damiano Caruso’s 12,030

Kämna won a decaffeinated and shortened stage at the Collado de la Cruz in Caravaca



Lennard Kamna

In fifth place we find the Bora team, with 64,680 euros, an amount widely distributed among all its riders, and it may be surprising that Cian Uijdebroeks, the second best youngster and eighth overall, did not earn the most money (15,090). euros ), almost surpassing Aleksandr Vlasov, 7th overall (14,710), with German Lennard Kämna contributing the most money to the team’s coffers, 18,370 euros, thanks to his victory in Caravaca.




Kaden Groves

The Alpecin thing is really unique, although it should not be surprising to have Kaden Groves in its ranks, winner of three stages and the green jersey of regularity. The Australian won 60,720 euros, while his team earned a total of 63,525 euros.

First stage of La Vuelta and first surprise of the race.  The DSM team was the fastest on the dangerous 14.8 kilometer route of the opening time trial of the Spanish round in the city of Barcelona



Alberto Dainese

Buena Vuelta is the curd of the DSM team. They started well by winning the Barcelona team time trial in a surprise, adding to Alberto Dainese’s victory and Romain Bardet’s good performance and the pecks of many other runners allowed them to win the overall 44,790 euros, of which 13,400 came from Alberto Dainese and 12,215 from Romain Bardet.

Enric Mas, confidence ahead of the Valladolid time trial



Enric Mas

The Spanish team did not have the expected performance in the Vuelta, with Enric Mas’s 6th place and not getting a stage victory, which did not prevent them from earning 38,150 euros, of which 15,940 were owed to Enric Mas and 4,260 to Iván García Cortina.




Filippo Ganna

This is not the Return of the British team. Luck eluded him in the general classification with the misfortunes suffered by Geraint Thomas and Thymen Arensman, 6th in the last edition. In the end, Ineos left the Vuelta with 35,035 euros still in its account, of which 28,510 was owed to the machine of Filippo Ganna, winner of one stage and second in three others. The second best in the income ranking is Jonathan Castroviejo with 2,220 euros.

Lenny Martinez, new leader of the Vuelta



Lenny Martinez

As in Lotto, in Groupama the young Lenny Martinez became the main fundraiser for the French team. Lenny, who wore the leader’s red jersey for two days, earned a total of 9,465 euros at the Vuelta, out of the team’s 32,690 euros. In Groupama the earnings are very divided, with 8,135 euros and 7,150 for Romain Gregoire.

La Vuelta speaks French.  If Lenny Martinez took the lead, victory in Oliva went to Frenchman Geoffrey Soupe after a contested sprint, ahead of Caja Rural's Venezuelan Orluis Aular in second position.



Geoffrey Soupe

The French team did not have a very good performance at the Vuelta. A diverse performance that allowed them to win 27,695 euros, of which 12,010 euros belonged to Geoffrey Soupe, winner of the 7th stage, and Steff Cras, 6,540 euros.

Rui Costa at the top of the Lekunberri podium



Rui Costa

They owe a lot to Rui Costa at Intermarché. The Portuguese, winner of Lekunberri, achieved with his effort 13,525 of 21,745 euros, there is a huge difference between him and Hugo Page’s 4,060 euros.

Orluis Aular

Good performance by Caja Rural in the Vuelta. The Navarrese team had a competitive performance as could be expected, showing a hunger and desire to please that is superior to other teams in the higher category. A match that allowed them to win 19,605 euros, of which 7,410 came from the Venezuelan Alberto Aular, with three stages left in the top 10: 2nd, 6th and 8th.

Jesús Herrada took victory in the 11th stage of the Vuelta at the finish in Laguna Negra by being the strongest in the big initial breakaway.  The arrival of the favorites who did not bother each other in the outcome of the day lent to it was disappointing.



Jesus Herrada

Jesús Herrada from Cuenca not only saved the honor of Spanish cycling but also saved the economic performance of his team, Cofidis, who in the Vuelta won 18,360, of which 12,210 belonged to Jesús Herrada.




Edward Theuns

They have a lot to improve on the new Lidl-Trek for them to have the potential they want to achieve. Their presence in the Vuelta has almost become testimonial and proof of this is the position they occupy in earnings, 18,210 euros, of which 8,480 belong to Edward Theuns.

The team in Madrid



Marijn Van Den Berg

The pink academic formation was hardly seen in the Vuelta and they were lucky for the red jersey worn by Andrea Piccolo and the kisses that Marijn Van Den Berg tried to give to those coming. The total won was 17,650 euros, of which 6,685 came from Van Den Berg.

Pelayo Sánchez, a native of Tellego, at one point during the stage



Pelayo Sanchez

Like Caja Rural, the Burgos team presented itself as minimally as possible, having the most outstanding man in the legs of Pelayo Sánchez. Burgos-BH left the Vuelta with 11,720 euros more, of which 4,635 belonged to the Asturian rider, who will go to Movistar next season.




Cristian Rodríguez

Much more can be expected from Nairo Quintana’s former team. Their yellow was visible from afar but at the Vuelta they were almost invisible again in part due to their poor performance, which saw them collect 8,850 euros, of which 6,790 was won by Cristian Rodríguez.




Andrea Vendrame

You should always expect more from a World Tour team like AG2R, but this is not their Tour, either in terms of the sport or in terms of finances. They left the Spanish round having collected 8,550 euros, of which more than half, 4,790, was owed to Andrea Vendrame, who finished third in the second stage in Barcelona.




Matteo Sobrero

Disappointing Return of the Jayco. Without the main riders who could do a good job in a Vuelta where the mountains ruled, and also a victim of misfortunes, Jayco raised only 8,240 euros, of which, attention, 7,160 belonged to Matteo Sobrero, second in one stage.

David de la Cruz on the Tour before the fall



David de la Cruz

When a team like Astana, from the highest division of the World Tour, closes the ranking of earnings with only 4,485 euros, it is clear that they do not reach par. An amount won largely due to David de la Cruz (2,340), who was in the top ten for many stages before leaving the race. The man from Sabadell ended his contract with the team this year.
