    Sweet, not only am I pretty fit for a crit racer, I'm also relatively common and interchangeable.

    So then the next question is: do you share your prize money? Or not?

    Just curious.

    Absolutely. Either by breaking out cash and checks, or paying for a meal after the race with it. Split cash, keep prizes unless I don't need it and another team member could use it.

    a) I recently won an iPod, how do you split that?

    b) is it really worth it to split $30?? For big purses, which basically none of us in the 33 are getting, it would make sense. Otherwise no.

    I think that question really applies to pros that are traveling/etc, not us weekend warriors.

    we keep what you win, but there is an expectation for gas contribution or buying chipotle after with no skimping on the guac.

    I won over $400 cash in one race with two teammates. $300 with one teammate in another. (Cat 3 and Masters, respectively, no primes, just overall)

    I am a long time academic and my first department chair was both wise and a wise-ass. He told me "Academic fights are so vicious because the stakes are so low". I get much the same vibe in this thread.

    If there were no splits, I wouldn't be on this team. It's not the amount so much it's the principle that has been a part of bike racing since forever.

    I won a bottle of wine and then bought my teammates burritos. What a weekend!

    The last time I won any money it was at my own team's race and the deal was that we couldn't keep it. It had to go back to the team.

    (Does anyone else's team do this for their races?)

    I've never heard of such a thing, but then again any race we've put on we've had to work.

    With my team, we split payout among anyone who lines up for the race. But, guys are not required to take the money if they don't think they deserve it. We make this clear to everyone joining the team so there is no discussion or hurt feelings later on.

    And for races we put on, our goal is to get as many guys on the podium as possible to protect the purse. We do not get payout in our events. At the same time, we don't pay full entry for the races either - it's $5 to race all day and that is to cover our costs (insurance, USAC and and LA fees...) for each racer.

    My team doesn't host races anymore and the last time they did I think everyone volunteered and didn't race. However, that seems like a silly rule though. Especially when I think the most money I've won over a weekend was at your race.

    Seems like a fair trade.

    Our events are intended to raise money for our charitable efforts. The less we pay out in prize money means the more we get to put toward our team's charitable goals. So, we race to protect the purse, and the team keeps as much money as it can to give away later.
