 Jonas Vingegaard ( Jumbo-Visma) our star from TDF grazed round  €779,750 (793,664.64 $), whereas Annemiek van Vleuten ( Group Movistar), winner of TDF Femmes collected round €62,440 (63,578.91 $). Relating to the followers, Tour de France created far more hype with a tough estimate of round 4 million viewers on each stage. The stage at Alpe d’Huez managed to rake in an viewers of 8.4 million, which is admirable. Then again, TDF Femmes had a viewing of three million folks on each stage.
