Since a good pro team like prime alliance ran on a budget of about 750K. I was wondering what a good regional amateur team's budget would be like? This would be for 10 guys.
I guess if you had to include product support as 'money' that would be included in the total.
So is a good budget, 10K cash, 8K product support?
Thoughts?

The budget depends entirely on how much the team wants to pay for. It's pretty rare for an amatuer team to pay much in the way of travel costs (which are the bulk of any team's budget) or equipment costs (beyond what is supplied for free). Basically, you're looking at buying jerseys and shorts, and race entry fees - though if you were a dominent team, they would usually be very small.

I would say that the usual course of action is to raise as much as possible, and spend it until it runs out.
