    Top Ten Tour Team Budgets

    According to Velonews 'Official' Guide, which seems to differ wildly with what Mr. LBS said he heard on OLN:

    (All USD)

    TMobile - 18.9m
    Rabobank - 12.5m
    Quick Step/Innergetic - 11.7m
    Cofidis - 10m
    Disco - 10m
    Phonak - 10m
    AG2R - 9.2m
    Bouygues - 8.8m
    CSC - 8.8m
    Gerolsteiner - 8.7m

    EDIT: Lowest budget appears to be Agritubel - 4.4m

    Is this just the TdF budget or the entire race season and does that include the salaries/contracts of the riders?

    Is CSC's budget figure leaving out Basso's contract? That one seems kind of low.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    no other info other than '2006 Budget'...

    reckon it includes all salaries, expenses, costs, etc. (including salaries of ullrich, basso, et. al. as it was prepared/printed many weeks before the Tour)

    had the same thought as USAZorro about the CSC budget - seems low...
