When they become 'assets' do riders get a 'signing on fee'?

 

If so, maybe not wanting to pay that back means they stay as an 'asset' for teams that they will never ride for?

A new asset that hasn't ridden here before certainly gets a fee as no transfer was used but most riders get a signing on fee that helps them set up for the season.

 

Having an asset can be a plus as you get first chance to talk to them or you get a loan fee. I remember Wolverhampton paid £18,000 for Nicki Pedersen from Newcastle and since he left the club as a rider they got more than that back from loan fees which was usually done according to their averages so the higher the average the higher the loan fee was.

 

Now with only eight tracks in the top flight assets aren't much of a bonus as they want to race and will take on most offers where as in the past riders didn't want to ride for certain tracks for various reasons

Is there a way to site to view clubs assets ?

Not officially as far as I know, but there was a thread where @2ndbendbeerhut listed the assets of the then EL clubs. Granted it's a few years out of date now, but is probably a good starting point.
