Cadel Evans’s BMC team walked away from the Tour de France with the lion’s share of the cash prize after the Australian claimed an historic maiden victory on the race Sunday.

Thanks to Evans, BMC won almost half a million euros (493,990) in prize money. American team RadioShack – who were decimated by injuries from crashes – finished bottom of the pile with 10,540 euros.

The bulk of BMC’s cash pot comes from Evans’ victory, an historic first for an Australian on the race. He won 450,000 euros, although tradition dictates he will share that with his eight team-mates.
