Not with Quick-Step :p
I use custom camera:) with Alt key

And Hitch playing PCM 09 with Astana is virtually the same as cheating in every single race that contains climbing :p
even with quick step if you send them on the wrong time and he doesn't manage to go up the peloton before the next section of cobbles the peloton might split and he won't be able to make the cut therefore not delivering.

i am too lazy for a custom camera XD

Do it once, it'll save :p Yeah but you've got so many good cobbled guys :p you can protect 4 of them and let 1 (De Jongh mostly) get the water whilst being protected, so if the peloton splits you just put him on 99DOT and he gets in the next peloton with the water without losing power:p it'll wreck the domestique though :p

yeah pr is the worst for getting water, the rider gets dropped or caught out half the time.

There are sum bugs regarding the water tho, sometimes the riders will go in to a1 even on a normal stage, I hate that :D

I haven't played pcm in ages, come on 11' :p

Pff his fame is overrated.

I'm at least as famous and as long around as him in Cycling Manager circles. I'm just called different on this forum.
:p
Dude, it's not cool to be known for being addicted to a video game :p

Thanks guys.

What i meant by the effort cursor was the second button from the left on the very bottom tab in this picture.





THats the dot right? I said effort cursor because on my game when i go over that point it says "effort cursor".

I never knew what it meant so i never used it (only been playing it a day but still). Might explain why ive never won:p
I think that was your last race as DS.
Lance will be very upset because of running out of water. :D

Alberto doesn't care, because he gets bottles from Caisse.

The only thing I've ever used that for is to move my key riders up to near the front of the peloton in the first few km: have I been missing good tactics?

I'm not sure when the console version is out although apparently there is far less emphasis on management and you are acting as a single rider trying to win the tdf. I ordered from PC version from Play today for £15 good price ...

struggling to find time to play 09 without starting again with 2011.

is it really worth downloading now or better to get it with the first patch?

Check pages 7-16 :p

Everybody is really postive. Best PCM im ages. So many good points that you should read that list without me expaling the awesomness ( at last :D ) of the game. it is really realsitic and excting. No more 8x. Sprints incredibly tense. Attacks possible on mountains and hills. Fight for trains in sprint. You can't pass rider now so you have to go around them - awesome.

You better read the comments anyway ;)

no more x8 ? OH NOEESSSS! stages will be far too long now :( :p

but in all seriousness, on flat stages x8 was really a help imo...
There is 8x though you don't use it as you can qucikly fall back down the pack and the peleton might spilt very easily, if too much on 8x you might miss very important events like tha. The stages are totally unpredicatble and very tense as well exciting which maeks game so fun. You have to concentrate in the peleton, where in PCM 10 you hadn't at all.

Eariler I think I posted my comment i nwrong way about 8x :p Excuse me !

Deafult DB is useless. In last PCM.Daily DB he had 76 in Mountains. 74 in Hills and TT. I think he will have very similar with new PCM.Daily DB coming out later in the week/two weeks.

Deafult DB are jsut complete wrong. Appollonio and Gallizymanov had bigger sprint stats than Goss, he had only 76 sprint while they had 78. 99% of the stats in deafult DB are way off, so no point even considering them ;)

P.S. I checked it for you Parrulo. He had 69 Mountain and 73 Hill. Preety laughable :D

By comparison, Kjel Carlstrom from Sky has 69 in Mooutain, also Gilbert is equal 69 in MO. Porte has 75, lol. Devolder has 71. The stats are useless as I said before ;) There is so many funny ones ;)

ya default db are always completely useless. i never play with them( i usually wait for pcm.daily db)

machado will prolly have similar stats as last year's daily db but he should be given some growth margin imo :p

And here comes the big downer:

Quote from the link TimmyRabo sent: "Time gaps on mountain stages are 5-10 minutes between the 1st and 10th".

Guys, that´s it for me. I´ll stay w/2009-PCM. All 2011-Improvements are useless if time gaps even got bigger, yet they should have been reduced.

And Gesink a better climber than S.Sanchez (don't let Hitch see it!!) :D
What about vdb :p ? His stats in 09 were also not really what they should be :p
