how much money does the average pro rider make? I'm assuming not enough to live only by riding: I know Alex Raban works at a pizzeria, and Tate Roskelley at a grocery store, but then I've heard Rob Wise doesn't have another job ever since he started riding for GT. And Sean Burns doesn't have a day job either, but he is the co-owner of Bone Deth. So basically, how much money would someone with a frame, parts, and clothes shoe sponsor make? How much would someone with many sponsors, like Scott Ditchburn or Dakota Roche make?

Depends on the riders level and sponsor. I know kink only gives tony Hamlin 250 a month

Idk but i don't really care. But i think someone like arron ross would be able to do it for a living or whatever.

Constant contest prize money is how he does it. Xgames at every country they do, dew tour, and so on

Dudes like Garrett Reynolds and Chad Kerley i'd say make quite a bit from being on nike and having drink sponsors alone. As far as your average pro rider with a frame and parts sponsor though they probably don't make a whole lot.

Definitely not true. Kink takes good care of their dudes.

Pro riders can make anything from a few hundred dollars a month to 150k+ a year, depending on their sponsors / level of riding / contest results / etc.

pro riders can also fuck themselves over quite easily even if they make tons of money by not doing their taxes properly as an independent contractor

tony hamlins interview in ride bmx a couple months ago was awesome

7/2/2013 5:16 PM

Sig parts bring them money just as pro football players memorabilia. Aaron Ross makes 6 figures due to that.

I seek progression, not perfection.

That's true, but guys like him and terry adams and garrett reynolds and daniel dhers (who also has a nice car, nice house and owns a skatepark) ride a lot of contests

His Parents own a huge Bike shop, and I think he runs it now, so that's the source of a lot of his money.

if you saw Nigel Sylvester's latest edit he literally shows like 3 handfuls of twentys but hes sponsored by Nike, Gatorade, G-Shock, Danscomp, Animal, and Beats by Dre

|

making half retarded post at the moment

7/2/2013 11:10 PM

Well you all are forgetting that some riders have AGENTS!! I bet you Nigel Sylvester has a real real nice agent, look at his sponsors, GATORADE!!! You think the guy that picks sponsors for Gatorade woke up and said, "BMX, thats my hook!" nope, i betcha Nigel's agent called them and asked them, and i bet they called a few others before that. There are a lot of opportunities out there and i know from being in the acting for commercials and movies, its hard to book stuff without a group or agent propping you up!! They can really help out. Trust me.

He doesn't work there anymore. That props interview is a few years old now and that's before he got on fit and rockstar. If I remember correctly he gets $2500 a month from fit, well at least when he did his albion interview.

Not all pros are broke the amount of money they spent on there bikes to do a bike from scratch youre looking at like £1,000 for a decent bike, they dont make videos about the parts what get broken, My 9 tooth backwheel broke today and they aint cheap, including hubs...it depends on the person and career. smile
