    Pro Cycling Manager 2008 features improved racing graphics, a new lighting system, more detailed backgrounds and incredibly realistic rider models and animations. The management aspect also offers more depth and realism due to the new tools and systems available. Pro Cycling Manager once again plunges you deep into the world of professional cycling, with a full complement of official teams, riders and jerseys (Astana, Quick Step, Team CSC, Rabobank, and the rest of the pro cycling teams) as well as hundreds of races, including the 2008 version of the Tour de France.

    Track Racing

    In PCM 2008 a new feature is introduces that allows the user to experience track racing. Track racing mode comes with three disciplines:

    • Sprint
    • Keirin
    • Elimination

    The track racing comes with a new control scheme. The user controls only one rider but have fully control over the riders effort and placement on the track. The track racing adds quick-fire, arcade style racing to the franchise, in both solo or multiplayer games. An ideal escape from the more reflective and thoughtful management mode.
