That's pretty cool he got that sweet check. Just being curious, I googled around to find some other contests that offer a $5k first prize:

Nathan’s Famous July Fourth International Hot Dog Eating Contest ($5,000 first prize for women, $20,000 for men)
3M’s National Tape Sculpture Contest
Independent Women's Voice’s "ObamaCare Anniversary Video Contest."
General Mill’s 2008 Merchandising Makeover: Pillsbury Bakery Edition contest.
The Rock FM ‘Canadian only” chicken wing eating contest.
Saginaw Bay Walleye Fishing tournament.
BONDI widget competition

Sorry, i'm on a roll today. wink

If Sipes won that hot dog contest he could have actually bought himself a new bike!

I went to the Big Wave Awards, man talk about risking your life, those waves were HUGE like 10 story buildings and their checks were the same or less, I guess it just depends on the exposure your sport gets.

i won an OGIO backpack with a built in cooler that will hold up to an 18 case of beer by holing out a 55 foot putt in a golf tourny.

Look at the results at a PGA tournament....35th place makes, like, $50,000. wassat
I wish I took up golf earlier.

If you don't crash once in a while, you're not going fast enough.

Considering I plan on having a race in October and will be paying out $5K to the winner... sure does seem as big an event that is, they could find the sponsors to put up a little more cash!

Just goes to show where MX/SX really sits in the scale of things.

$50,000.00 for a shoot out win? Chad only got $35,000.00 for second place in the SX class points. Why would they give him $50,000.00 for one race?

Feld should be embarrassed by the prize money in this sport. Sold out stadium in LV and they couldn't even pay the entertainment in the Lites classes. Straight up embarrassing!! I would say riders union but the guys making the money would not join and they would just black ball and replace everyone else. The walk out 1998 failed and that had big name riders.

Ex-MXer Rickie Fowler finished tied for 16th in last weekend's PGA golf tournament and made $97,500. Pretty wise career path that boy chose.

I love MX but the riders will never get paid what they're worth. Too many fingers in the pie.

On a side note, because I signed up for emailed SX updates, I received a discount offer for Ringling Bros. circus tickets today!

Based on the effort the riders put in to the shootout.... Not at all.
