How much do Stage Races cost?

I watched the 2019 version of the Absa Cape Epic and got really eager to participate.
But how much does it cost?




Entry fee: USD 6290 (per team). USD 3145 per rider.
This includes tented accommodation and meals.
The flight from Sweden to South Africa seems to come to about USD 1000.

The Cape Epic has 8 stages.

Price per stage: USD 518.

I'm Swedish so for me this means: € 500 / 5000 SEK per stage.



Let's compare this to some other Stage Races
