Salaries

So Astana has made a 8 million euro salary offer to Contador, double of what he had been expecting.

What are the salaries of other top pros?

People get paid more to play ball for 3 months.

Also, any idea on endorsement deals? I read before that Pantani made 30 mil from a supermarket spokesman gig.

No, he had a deal with a company that specializes in hair implants. Poor thinking by their marketing department as the ad campaign did not go over well.
