Prize money breakdown for anyone interested!

During one stage, David Millar was talking about prize money and how it works.  The amount of people that take a cut was an eye opener. The tax man takes a cut, the UCI take a cut, then the Nation Federation take their cut, then after that the prize money is shared.  IIRC he said a small example would be one of the €1500 sprint inter prizes, with amount the rider would end up with roughly €1000.

That's pretty good really if the taxman and the other groups have taken their cut already.
