Summary: I bought this game for my Dad, who is an avid Cyclist. The game is very real when it comes to tactics as you MUST work as a team to get your sprinters over the line first or to get you climbers up the hills/mountains. The game wont let you ride an entire race, it has one race (134km) long for example, but cuts the race into sections.
Excerpt: This is a strange review to be writing. I do not like this game and many like me are going to feel the same. However, it is an excellent simulation and if you are in the group of people who the game is clearly aimed at then you are going to find this game deep, challenging and entirely immersive. To me, I felt like I was wandering around the various options looking for somebody to ask what was going on but failing to find any help.
Pros: Deep, complex, simulates cycle tour racing
Cons: Too much for a novice to enjoy . Only accessible to cycle aficionados .
