Supercross $$1.25 million for 1 race, Peanuts for a season?

Recommended Posts

The Monster Energy Cup gave a total purse of $1,250,000.00 to the riders ($1 million to RV) for an off season event that barely included 4-5 of the top 10 riders. How can this amount of money be given for just one event, when the worlds top riders battle it out for months on end for just peanuts, and a pat on the back, if they're lucky?

Dude this has been talked about many times........... Its a one of race so they can do special things. If the purse wasn't high nobody would have gone..... They didn't expect any1 to win all three.....Monster probably paid for most of it.....SX and MX compared to the GPs have a great payout.......FELD doesn't give a shit cause riders will always sign up regardless of the purse........ex..................

I know its nonething compared to other sports but look at it this way

If the rider is on a team that will pay for all travel, bike and entry fee costs if he just qualifies for every sx main he will get...

20th place in 450 SX is $2,135 X 17 rounds = $36,295 + bike contingency + plus if the Team pays a salary too....

Plus if he did the outdoors season, making $100k+ a year shouldn't be a problem especially with 3 months off to do local races/aussy super x/ bercy sx/MEC........

was is not $100,000 to the winner and a million dollar bonus to win all three? RV should get 1,100,000.
