From sponsors to finances, from your cyclists training to negotiation of their contracts, you have all the cards in hand to lead your team to success! Tactics will also be required during the races, where each of your decisions will be important if you wish to win the most prestigious competitions!

Races are more realistic-looking than ever, thanks to the improved 3D engine. New cyclist models have been designed, reflecting the real-life stature and riding style of each competitor. The environments boast more varied scenery, landscapes, and tracks than ever before.

While looks are important, the real meat of the game is still the management aspect, which is now more detailed than ever. The user interface has been streamlined, while still offering more precise interactions with the team’s cyclists and sponsors. Sponsorship management is richer and more in-depth, and each cyclist’s performance during a competition will directly impact their salaries and sponsors' offers. To keep things interesting, the updated AI presents fierce competition with plausible, unpredictable behavior in the pack as well as during breakaways, sprints, and other highlights of the race. The fan-favorite level-editor is back, letting creative players design their dream race! It has been updated with a broad range of new scenery elements and new effects to create races with an even higher level of detail!

With a wide range of new features, tweaks and upgrades, the game still stays faithful to the spirit of the series. Pro Cycling Manager: Tour de France 2011 is sure to please cycling and sports management fans, when it releases.
