The greatest race on earth just got better.
Check this out!!!! Mega payout in Tulsa
At the moment the prize for 1st place is $4000 , and if the number of pro entries goes up then the 1st place winnings will increase to $7000, it makes me wonder why a lot more UK pros don’t go over the pond and give it a go, not only that but the no 1 overall pro will receive a cool $20,000 , add that onto sponsor payouts and its not a bad day at the office eh…..its not quite what the 90’s pro’s where getting but its a hell of lot better than the loose change offered by BC in the UK!!!
Here is the breakdown of how the $125k will be split-
USA BMX announced today that the total prize money up for grabs in Tulsa would top $125,000, making it the richest weekend in the history of BMX Racing.
The season-end payout has been doubled, giving the winner a $20,000 payday (2-10 below). Top of Pro Women will get $5,000 for the season win.
Based on the number of AA pros signed up at press time, the purse looks like it will be $14,000 ($4,000 for first). And that’s not the end of it. If 36 or more AAs show up, that number gets bumped-up again, to $20,000 total, with $7,000 for the winner.
Women will split a $4,000 purse with $1200 for first.
The Answer Holeshot Award ends its first season back with double-stuff for the Saturday race–$500 for AA and Women. ROC on Friday will payout $250 each for A Pro, Vet, Women and AA.
Oh, and the NAG-Fivers get in on the ka-ching thing too. A $5,000 purse will be split evenly with $2500 each for boys and girls alike. This is the first year the NAG 5 gets a money purse instead of prizes.
