2022 World Supercross Championship Cardiff Superceoss payouts revealed for each rider!!

So, how much did the World Supercross series payout to the 44 riders that participated this weekend? Well, we’ve got the answers you seek below. Before we jump into it though, here are some notes that could effect what riders were paid but are different in each riders/teams situation. Meaning, we can’t accurately add them to the table below.


The Teams Decide What The Riders Are Paid

The purse money is actually paid to each team based on their riders finishes. It’s then up to the teams to decide in contract how to disperse these funds amongst their riders. We’ve heard some riders went to the series on little-to-no salary terms with their teams but receive all the purse money for their finishing positions. Other riders told us they have a salary / show-up money in their contracts per race they attend but in turn don’t receive the full purse for the positions they finished. We’ve heard anything from the team taking 10% off-the-top, to as high as 30%. On top of that, we’ve had two riders confirmed they’re required to give 10% of their earnings to their mechanic in this series.

Not All Riders Are Paid The Same

Outside of some riders receiving salaries from their teams, which we don’t have full access to so we can’t list it…two riders in the field are widely reported to have been given direct payments from the series promoters, SX Global, in a form of start money. These two riders are Eli Tomac and Ken Roczen, who are rumored to be getting between $200,000-$250,000 per race they attend, before their purse money they score.
