Will Strickson 19 Mar 2021 L'Équipe has published a list of the top 20 earners in the peloton Chis Froome 's new contract with Israel Start-Up Nation has made him cycling's highest earner, bringing in a cool €5.5 million salary. That's according to a report published by French sports newspaper L'Équipe that listed the top 20 best paid riders in the men's peloton and looking at the list, dominated by Ineos Grenadiers , there are a few surprises.
