    My understanding is that most of Lance Armstrong's income comes from US-based sponsors (Trek, Suburu, etc.), who pay him somewhere in the 8 figures per year. His salary from the team pretty small compared to that. Support riders will make a lot less, especially the guys that do not race in the big races. The Discovery team uses less than half of the team to the Tour de France.
