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. So if you have worked really hard to get your team to the front and made a breakaway with a rider and instructed the rest of your team to slow up the Peleton, when it comes back 56km later you are still on the break away but the Peleton have gained 2 minutes on you and your team mates have been blown out the back door.
If it wasnt for this tiny issue i would of given it 5 stars.
