richard carapaz salary – Salary of Richard Carapaz: According to reports in Italy, the Giro d’Italia winner is currently earning only €150,000 per year with Movistar, but is on his way to Team Ineos, where he will earn €1.5 million per year.
According to media reports in Italy, Giro d’Italia winner Richard Carapaz earns a meagre €150,000 per year as a Movistar employee.
However, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Ecuadorian appears to be on his way to a lucrative new contract.
As reported by Team Ineos, the 26-year-old is about to join the team after winning the Giro and winning two stages along the road.
It has also been suggested that the team’s CEO receive a salary of €1.5 million per year, which is approximately right for a team with 10 riders earning at least €1 million each year.
The 26-year-old is now a valuable asset for any squad, and not just because of his victory in the Giro d’Italia.
He rode incredibly well throughout the race, and he appeared to be the strongest rider by far once he was awarded the race leader’s jersey.
On stage 14, Primoz Roglic (Jumbo Visma) and Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain Merida) effectively underestimated him and gave him far too much rope.
Carapaz won the stage that day and gained about two minutes on the rest of the field, gaining the lead and holding on to it throughout the race.
However, he had also taken first place in the fourth stage of the race to Frascati. And, having earned a stage win and finished fourth overall in the Grand Tour last year, any club that signs him would be making an investment in a proven Grand Tour rider.
It should come as no surprise that he may be earning as little as €150,000 per year.
Despite the fact that the transfer market has been quite low in recent years, he remained a relative unknown prior to joining Movistar.
While racing for Colombian Continental level team Strongman-Campagnolo Wilier in 2016, he decided to join Movistar at the end of July of that year and hasn’t looked back since.
As a result, he has only three years of experience in the Premier League under his belt. Indeed, he had only competed in a handful of UCI-ranked races before to joining Movistar.
In 2014, for example, he only competed in one race with a UCI ranking, the five-stage Vuelta al Sur de Bolivia, which had a UCI ranking at the time (UCI 2.2).
In the next year, he competed in only two UCI-ranked events, the U23 road race and the TT at the Pan American Championships, where he finished fourth and sixth, respectively, in the U23 road race and TT.
When he joined Movistar, he became the first rider from Ecuador to compete for a WorldTour team, and he will go down in history as a national athletic hero in a country that, aside from soccer, places little emphasis on sports.
