    A couple of q's about prizes in the TdF

    1.What is the prize for winning the TdF ?
    2.I know that the winner of every stage gets 5000 euros.Is there a prize for holding the yellow/green... jersey during the race ?
    3.This is a hypothetical question but what happens if two riders finish with the same overall time ?
    4.Why didn't Lance give Sheryl a hug after he won stage 13 ?(this is an open question)

    3. They take the exact times from the time trials to determine the winner.

    The prize for winning is around 400,000 Euros and a bowl. I imagine Sheryl didn't want to get near him after he'd been riding for 6 hours in 90 degree heat. My wife won't so much as kiss me after even a 1.5 hour ride until I've been to the shower.

    Read this Tour FAQ from cyclingnews.....there is a detailed look at prizemoney and how teams divide it.

    Nothing about Lance and Sheryl, however.
