I started in anew team 15 years ago. we got the following:
$500 cash from shop
cost plus 20%
had a few other sponsors for some cash like the above amount
We raced about 30 times a year and would win a few races and maybe one state championship each year.
15 years later same team, ... we get the following:
$500 cash from the shop
retail minus 15%
and a few other sponsors ....
I raced 54 times in Masters 35 and 45+ races and a few Pro 12 events
won 11 races myself and all 3 state chapionship events (age group)
our team won about 35 times.
team Swept the state 35 race series podium.
personally won two and medalled in 4 out of 5 masters nationals events entered.
Get the picture? Slim pickin's where I'm from.
Good luck, it's about having fun with your buddies, not getting struggling bike shops to stuggle harder so can get free clothes and entry fees.
Hope this history dump was helpful.
