The coolest (and one of the only) pro cycling manager for gamers, now has a brand new demo available. If you’ve ever wanted to manage your own pro cycling team and take victory by the handle-bars, then here’s your chance. And the good part is that the demo is about the same size as that new map pack for Lost Planet: Extreme Condition.
This 436 megabyte demo allows players to race the 8th stage of the Tour De France 2007: Le Grand Bornand - Tignes. Now there’s a specific setup in the demo for which players will be managing the race, not to mention conditions in which the leg of the race must be won. But considering that I have zero skills in properly commentating the measures of the race, I’ll let you read on the demo specifics below:
From the release: “One of your riders, Wim Van Huffel, pulled off a real exploit in the 7th stage.
“Your Australian leader, Cadel Evans, has got his eye on this 8th stage. He thinks he can win it, but knows that it won't be easy. He can't attack from too far out otherwise he would be sure to rob Wim Van Huffel of his yellow jersey. He'd obviously like to hang on to the precious yellow jersey for as long as possible.
“Robbie McEwen, the team sprinter has no plans for the stage, except to conserve energy for race profiles that are more suited to his talents. Take advantage of the grupetto, (new with this version) to allow him to have a gentle ride with the tail-enders when the peloton breaks apart.”
Main objective : conserve Wim Van Huffel's yellow jersey
Secondary objective : win the stage.
Now what kind of reporter would I be if I left you wanting more and not providing a link for this highly-anticipated demo? I would probably be an IGN reporter. No, I’m only kidding a little bit. You can check out the list of demo links below (just click on the name of the host) or visit the Official Pro Cycling Manager Website for all the info you need about the game.
