Wages for average pro rider?

Can anyone give us a quick run down on how much an average pro rider can make in a year? We know the top few make a bunch but how about the average domestique?

Varies tremendously depending on team and which races you go to. Low-level teams pay very little.

So it could be a deal where you are paying to ride (for some).

years old and in British pounds, but this is probably a decent explanation.
Curiously enough I got to this link by Googling "what does Tejay van Garderen make"?

Despite what some people here seem to think being American is a plus salary-wise.
