2019 ANAHEIM ONE SUPERCROSS | COMPLETE COVERAGE

One topic that we often hear discussed in the sport is the purse payout to racers from the race organizers. There's no denying that riders at the top levels of the sport are paid quite well by motorcycle manufacturers, apparel brands, energy drinks, and other associated sponsors, but purse money from races make up very little of their income (the same cannot be said for privateers, as many often rely on purse and contingency money). As the ruling body of the 2019 Monster Energy Supercross Series, the FIM and AMA have released the purse payout for the 450 class at every event that will be held in 2019, with a total sum of $86,807 paid to the riders per race.

The figures posted below do not include the bonuses that some OEMs pay factory riders for exceptional finishes, which can often reach six-figures for the main event win and are not readily released by the brands, or the contingency plans in place by all six brands, additional dollars that can quickly add up for an independent racer. After a quick online search, we found the rough contingency amounts announced by OEMs ($1,353,200 series purse posted by Honda, $1,339,600 series purse posted by Yamaha, $1,433,100 series purse posted by KTM and $367,200 series purse posted by Husqvarna [circa 2018 numbers]), and you can see that there is more to be made.

As we stated above, the salaries and bonuses are how riders make much of their money. This is purely the promoter purse payout for the 450 class. The FIM-AMA-Feld have slightly increased the purse compared to 2018; check out our post from last year’s race to see the changes.
