When did teams first come to the tour(s)? When did people start getting money for racing?

I don't know when actual teams started, but there was a little 'factoid' during OLN coverage yesterday that the winner of the first TdF got 3,000 francs for winning, so apparently racers have been getting money for winning the Tour since its inception. As for when people actually first started to get $$ for racing, I can't answer that.
