Van der Poel's Alpecin and Deceuninck, those who have earned the most money on the Tour

The Dutch squad, the Belgian team and Bahrain Victorious have been the teams that have pocketed the most money in prizes after the first nine stages of the race.


The great performance that many teams have shown during this spectacular first week of the Tour de France has also brought a significant financial benefit to their pockets as a reward for their hard work and success in these first nine stages.In this way it is surprising that a team with a UCI Pro Team license, the Alpecin-Fenix, one of the most entertaining of the race in these first days, is the team that has won the most money, with an amount of 51,660 euros. Much of these figures come from the triumphs of Mathieu Van der Poel (at the Brittany Wall) and Tim Merlier (at Pontivy), for which they have received 11,000 each and another 13,800 for the two second and third place in the stage of Jasper Philipsen. Also contributing is the fact that Mathieu Van der Poel has worn the leader's yellow jersey for 6 days, which has earned the team another 500 euros for each Van der Poel day in yellow.

The second team that has won the most money so far on the Tour has been the Deceuninck Quick-Step with a total of 51,580 euros, of which 33,000 come from the triumph of Julian Alaphilippe in the first stage at Landerneau and the two victories at the Mark Cavendish sprint at Fougères and Chàteauroux. In turn, the Briton has also added more money in the intermediate sprints and as the bearer of the green jersey.The third in this classification is the Bahrain-Victorious with a profit of 48,400 euros after the two victories achieved by Matej Mohoric and Dylan Teuns in the days of Le Creusot and Le Grand Bornand, for which they have received 22,000 euros. The UAE Emirates complete the Top-5, with a profit of 26,400 euros (highlighting the 11,000 of the victory of Pogacar in the Laval chrono) and the AG2R Citröen, with 24,980 euros of which 11,000 correspond to the victory of Ben O'Connor Tignes.

Only 10 of the 23 teams in the peloton have exceeded the barrier of 10,000 euros in prizes and it stands out that squads such as Astana (8,390 euros), Ineos (3,930) and Movistar (3,660) accumulate so little money in prizes after the first nine stages of the Tour de France.
