Vingegaard ridicules Tour de France winner

The Tour de France women’s bonus classification has fallen and is logically dominated by winner Annemiek Van Vleuten. However, the Dutchman remains far from the sums collected by her male counterpart Jonas Vingegaard.

At the end of the 8th and final stage of the Women’s Tour de France, the organizers of the race published the ranking of the profits earned by the various teams. Unsurprisingly, Movistar is in the lead thanks to Annemiek Van Vleuten, winner of the Grande Boucle as well as two stages, pocketing a total of €62,440. Teams SD Worx (€46,490) and Canyon SRAM Racing (€25,550) complete the podium.

Specifically, the holder of the yellow jersey has collected more than €60,000 in bonuses alone, including €50,000 for her overall ranking and €8,000 for each of the stages she collected. A nice sum, but far, far away from the €500,000 collected by Dane Jonas Wingegaard, the men’s Tour de France winner, and the €22,000 received for his two stage wins.

Vingegaard far ahead of Van Vleuten

It must be said that the bonuses reserved for the women’s tour, estimated at 247,530 euros, are practically ten times less important than those reported for the men (2,282,000 euros). A significant gap, which is partly explained by the fact that the women’s version of the Grande Boucle had only 8 stages (compared to 21 for men). But with this great popular success of this first edition, the gap may close in the coming years.
