Become the next global cycling phenomenon in this new career mode! Create your own pro cyclist and customize his name, age, nationality, morphology, specialization and even pedalling speed! After joining a team, upgrade your stats race after race by completing multiple objectives. For example, improving your stamina, will require you to spend time in cobbled sectors or in solo breakaways.
Test your skills as a downhill rider! Your ability to manage downhills can confirm your victory or cost you the Tour or a jersey. This mode consists of riding down technical passes to beat reference times. Playable for two players in split-screen, the Challenge mode also lets you play by yourself against your “ghost”. An online leader board lets you measure your performance against players from around the world.
Step into the shoes of a sports manager and lead your pro cycling team through a challenge-packed 2018 season. Compete in over 200 races across 500 stages around the world, including famous Tours such as La Vuelta and the iconic Tour de France.
It’s up to you to make all the decisions for your team: hiring the best cyclists and staff, contract negotiations, sponsoring, race scheduling, training… During the race, choose the finest tactics to lead your riders to victory. Play solo or online multiplayer in clans with up to 16 players and prove to everyone who is the best pro cycling manager!
In Pro Cyclist mode, you leave your management shoes in the locker and step into those of a cyclist starting his career. Once you’ve created your rider, choose your first team and your manager will assign you a role and some specific objectives. Your progress will heavily depend on your ability to comply with your manager and leader’s directives, and maybe one day, you’ll become the team leader yourself. Being the leader lets you participate in the events you want to compete in, but also means you select your teammates from amongst the best riders and give them orders during race. Build yourself a solid reputation in the peloton, and you might join one of the most prestigious cycling teams!
Like many professional cyclists, you can now give your riders a double specialization from the beginning of their career – one main and one secondary. Also, customize your riders’ evolution by choosing between immediate improvements and maximum potential increase for their stats. All these changes, plus a rebalancing of rider levelling, have made it more enjoyable to progress. Once leader, a new option allows you to give a free effort order to your teammates while forming a train.
Ready to prove your value against other pro managers? Compete online in existing or self-made tournaments, races, tours and routes! You can create your own clan and join your friends in the in-game chat to organize competitions and consult current leaderboards. Dive into competitive mode at the head of one of the game’s professional teams and reach the top of the official rankings!
