Cycling Manager 2 announced

I want to ride manage my bicycle

With the Tour De France currently underway, what better time to announce a new game all about the noble art of cycling up and down mountains for weeks on end? Step forward the imaginatively titled Cycling Manager 2, which does exactly what it says on the box, giving you the chance to control one of sixty professional cycling teams as they race on 180 stages over a grand total of 27,000 km of road. The game will apparently let players control their team's line-up, hiring and firing riders and scouting for upcoming talent, as well as deciding team strategies and giving orders to your individual riders during the race. Then there are sponsors to attract, injuries to deal with, training to supervise, equipment to purchase, diets to confirm... If this sounds like your idea of fun, you can look forward to battling over gaudy jumpers in August, courtesy of Singularity Software. Related Feature - Cycling Manager 2 screenshots
