Hate to be a pedant but...wage means how much you get paid by your employer. It doesn't include endorsements. I know you didn't say average, but you used the word 'decent'. I'd say most of the guys on the World Tour are decent.

I read one comment from one rider who had an emotional moment after his home country WC was pretty much washed out for the top riders. 6 months preparing, 35,000 fans, a chance to win on home soil....ya, he lost it a bit. I have just read 3 ridiculously ... more ยป
