Description

In Cycling Manager, the player gets the opportunity to bring a cycling team to the top. It's possible to sit through a complete season or just play one race.

Before the start of the race, team tactics have to be decided and the best cyclists for the particular race have to be chosen. During the race, the computer can perform all of the work or the player himself can make last-minute decisions like ordering an attack or making a cyclist participate in intermediate sprints.

The teams in the game are all based on existing teams, however some of them do not have their proper names.
