Is there a money prize for winning the TDF?
Yes, 340k to 400k depending on who you ask NMJames1

I seriously doubt LA keeps much of the prize money from the tour. His teammates self-sacrafice probably earn them a big chunk. Lance gets his cash from his contract, and from Trek, Nike, and his other various sponsors.

Traditionally, the winner of the Tour refuses his share so his teammates get more, payback for their work. Lance commented on that in his interview with Letterman I think it was.
