It's that time of year once again when grown men in tight-fitting uniforms take to ultra-light bicycles to get with the pack in a bid to become the one with the yellow jersey at the journey's end. We're talking about the Tour de France, of course, and what better time to acknowledge the arrival of Cycling Manager 4 for PC, courtesy of Digital Jesters. Not just a celebration of the world's most famous marathon by pedalling (France isn't even included in the championships contained herein) Cycling Manager 4 features six new championships to negotiate. Like any other sports management title, Cycling Manager 4 will delight and frustrate in equal measure. Real management is no picnic after all, and when the wheels start turning on the tarmac, your decisions on race tactics are crucial to the success or failure of your career in cycling.

Cycling Manager 4's interface is surprisingly easy to use, given the number of different tasks you are charged with. Everything from your cyclist's training regime, to the amount of money spent on essential cycling expenses, through to the strategy and execution of race tactics is solely down to you, the manager. Once you have decided on your plans for the race, sit back and watch it all unfold in 3D in a choice of six countries: Switzerland, Norway, Australia, Portugal, Denmark and the USA. So, will your sweaty and sunburned - or maybe even mud-spattered and rain-soaked man fight his way through to the front and hold off the opposition threat? Only the best tactician will win on the day, and it could be you.
