Cycling is one of the most physically demanding forms of sport in the world, so you can imagine that managing a team of cyclists is no easy task either. Now, the new management game Live Cycling Manager 2 from developer Xagu Studios dares to ask the question: Are you up for the challenge? This game will task you with taking care of every single aspect of a cycling team, from recruiting new talents to designing the kit, and it’s about as real and thorough as a game can possibly get. Check out its trailer below:

After you finish creating a team of your own, you’ll have to hire staff, which includes athletes, trainers, doctors, scouts, and more. There are tons of things that you have to pay attention to, from managing the financial situation of the team to maintaining equipment and dealing with injuries.

And then there’s the training part, which in itself is another plethora of tasks. You have to make sure the training equipment is sufficient, book training camps for your team, and so on.

Aside from that, you’ll also see to, well, literally everything else: registering for races, picking riders to partake in each tournament, etc. Not only that, but it also falls to you to attract sponsors and make deals with manufacturers to be able to buy better bikes for cheaper prices.

Live Cycling Manager 2 features forty teams, all of which will be your competitors. You’ll participate in several countries and across a wide variety of environments. Furthermore, you can’t just simply pick a strategy before a race and leave your team to it either: You’ll actually have to watch the race plays out on your screen and make tweaks to your tactics in real time in order to get the best result.
