$$$$ never hurts. Lance gives his One Million Dollar prize for winning the tour to his 8 teammates for them to split up. I can think of worse things then making (at least) $125,000/ year to ride/race bicycles!Originally Posted by Zaius
During the rest of the year (ie. Dauphne, Vuelta Espana, Giro de Italia), Lance rides support for his teammates. Hincapie had a fantastic chance this year to win the prestigious Duphne-Libere with Lance as his domestique. So while we in the US see one bike race a year (albeit the Super Bowl of bike racing)- there's plenty of other opportunities for members of Team Discovery to shine.
