I posed this question earlier in a longer post, but didn’t get much of a response.
Where does the money go from registered riders? $150 spread out over 10,000 official, along with day passes sold as well, seems to be a pretty hefty hunk of change.
Besides the SAG’s, baggage trucks and staff, and the few support vehicles I saw, they’re seems to be little overhead for this event. Plus they seem to be making money at the merchandise booth as well.
Is this a for-profit event?
