Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20hey i'm the catholic gamer and welcometopro cycling manager 2021 this is atutorial for the newfitness and objective system within thegame this is going to be covering bothcareer mode and pro cyclist mode as thisnew system has been incorporated intoWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40both of those and i'll show you examplesof this system within both of my let'splay series that i have active on thechannel right now i have both a careermode and a stage racespecialist pro cyclist mode series aswellexamples from both and i'll let you knowthe details of howto maximize your writer's effectivenessWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00throughout the seasonthrough the use of fitness andobjectiveswe start on the career mode side ofthings and an explanationof the system and then we'll just showthe differences in the pro cyclist sideturns out the pro cyclist site isactually a little more detailed a littleeasier toknow what's up than it is in the careermode side butwe'll start with the remote side so youWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20can figure out what's going onhere there's two key screens that aregoing to help you with fitness andobjectivesone is the objective screen but let'sstart elsewhere the other screenand this is looking at individualwriters within your teamwhen you open it it always pops up ongeneral let me show youso if we go to our team leader hereWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40shotaro aribearibe if we open up his screen it startson the general partbut you have this preparation tab thispreparation tabis very very useful this year in the waythat the gameis set up ultimately the objectives andfitnesssystem has been revamped in a way that aWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00simplifies it and b makes it morerealistichere's the old system in a nutshell ifyou're not familiar with the olderversions of the gameyou could manage all of your writersboth in the pro cyclist mode and in thecareer modeyou manage their fitness week by week byweek throughout the entire seasonWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20in terms of objectives you would selectthreeone from each trimester of the seasonand for those three you can gain threebonuses for the objectivesand three fitness peaks throughout theyear but outside of that windowyou could maintain a near 100 fitness orat least 90 plusWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40generally about 94 to 95 plusall year long every single week of theseason throughout its entiretyand maintain zero fatigueover that period so high fitness nofatigue and then three objectivesthat was the old system it was too easyand that's unrealistic because in realWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00lifea writer a professional cyclistthey're gonna go through peaks andvalleys when it comes to fitness peaksand it's huge in how it impactsa rider season when you manage it wellwriters can find a lot of successWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20a slight mistake can see their entireseason derailedbecause again you cannot maintainpeak fitness all the time the body justcan't handle itso this new system i want to first offacknowledge how wonderful it is to havea system nowwas it nice to have your riders at nearWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40100 all the timesure of course it was nice but havingmore realism brought to the gameeven if it adds challenge and difficultyvery welcome change for me and thenlikewisethe system has ultimately beensimplifiedspeeds the game up and i also welcomeWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00that for methis is actually a wonderful wonderfulchange that cyanide has brought to thegamethis year all right let's go ahead andstart breaking downwhat it is this is not a new screen okayyou could find this screen before inolder versions of the gamebut you could find a very similar screenwhen youopen the fitness panel where you used toWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20handle during preparationwhere you used to handle writer fitnessthat screenin the planner next to the writersclickableexpand adjust the training that screenit's not there in the way that it usedto be thereit's still there it's still present wecan look at a rebate here in the plannerWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40this is that pulled down management ofthe training program that i was talkingaboutbut we don't control it now we just seewhat is hisfitness and preparation level what ishis fatiguethree points what does that all mean andwhat do we control let's go back intothe other screenthis screen has evolved from last yearso it's important to note that becauseWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00in last year's model and previous year'smodel of the game youry-axis starts at 50 it goes 50to 100. you're varying fitness levelsthroughout the year your training yourpreparationand you see your fatigue that isunchanged what's changedis the scale it was 50 to 100 now it'sWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20zero to 100. now with that in mindin years past fatigue came down to asimplemark anything below 50your rider was not fatigued so you couldbehave a tiredness of 49 points and youwere not fatiguedat 50 you have light fatigue and iWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40believe it was 75where you get to heavy fatigue heavyfatigueyou're gonna see minus four race dayconditions every day at50 plus you're gonna see probably minustwosmost days so you simply avoid it bymanagingyour your training schedule making itlight when you need to make it light butWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00that system has changed as part of thisthe new system instead of at 50 pointswhere you begin to seelight fatigue they've scaled that downnow it happens at 40. you could see arebatefor a short period of time early thisseason february into early marchhe did get light fatigueWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20since then we have managed it muchbetter it is going to ebb and flow it isgoing to riseand fall i'm not sure exactly what themarkis for heavy fatigue from what i've seeni believe it happens nowat 60 and above though i'm not certainon that let me know in the commentsbelowso i can add a note if you've alreadyWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40foundfound exactly where that value isyourself the main pointis you want to avoid fatigue all thetime it'svery very bad for your race takeaddition and it's very bad for theexpected results of your ridersso to avoid that keep it below40. the other number 60 doesn't matterso much again it'sWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00keep it below the mark and mark is we want to be high all the timehoweverthat's just not possible in the newmodelthe new model guarantees that rollercoaster thatebb and flow that rise and fallof fitness levels get used to it you'reWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20gonna have to plan around it now now theprimaryreason why it's not possible is that youhaveobjectives and instead of a maximum ofthreein one year and spread out it would havebeen nice if you could just pickthree because there's three grand toursand if you'rea stage racer three grand tours is afantastic set ofWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40three objectives if you want to win allof them wasn't possible in the oldsystemyou could get two of them you couldn'tget three the giro and the tour fellinto the same window nowyou can pick those three objectivesand you could pick a whole bunch morebeyond that there's advantages topicking thoseand there are disadvantages now theWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00primary disadvantageis it's going to drastically increaseyour fatigueso each objective is going to drive upyour fatigueso you need to choose carefully thoseobjectiveshow and when to use them but here's thebasicdetails going on behind the scenes onWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20how to manageyour fitness level when you are notin a objective window your fitness iscappedat eighty percent anytime you do nothavean objective or an upcoming objectiveyour fitness cannot go above 80 at80 percent you're going to have a minusWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40one race take conditionwith zero fatigue expected now the gamehas a draw system for race day conditionwhen you actually goin there will be a random draw you havea plus five to a minus five rangeand it's bell curved so whatever yourexpectedminus one or a zero or a plus twoWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00whatever if you have an expected of plustwoyou will have probably a forty percentlikelihood that you will have a plus twoadd one or subtract one from that plusthree orplus one you then now have lesser oddsnot forty percent but maybe twentypercenttwenty percent that you will have a plusWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20twouh sorry plus three or a plus one rightup one or upor down one from whatever that expectedisand then it's gonna taper off like thatso bell curve styleplus five is possible minus five ispossiblebut it is unlikely the odds are againstWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40itbut it does happen from time to time theexpectedrace day condition is what you cancontrol because the bell curverandom draw anything that you can committo makethings better for your writers at theright timesis going to help you out that's why theold system was super easyto gain that advantage consistently theWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00new systemnot the case and so we've got to manageriders more carefully than before eventhough the management system is easyagain when you're not approaching orin an objective your cap is eightypercent on fitnesswhich the expected race day condition isminus one when youWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20approach an objective and i don't knowexactlywhen the window opens for this but ibelievesomewhere around three to four weeks outas you approach an objectivethat window opens and fitness begins tobuildmeaning you're no longer capped at 80you are now capped atWatch at: 10:20 / 10:4090 and your writer will build fitnessthrough training orracing towards that goal but then againstuck at 90 cannot go beyond and thenfinally whenyou hit inside of two weeksspecifically meaning 13 days before anobjectiveit fully opens from that 90 cap and nowWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00hits a 100cap now that doesn't mean that you'regoing to be in those places with yourfitnessbut it means it becomes possible to hitthose landmarksfull fitness is only availableinside of two weeks before an objectiveand during an objectivenow the moment the objective is completeWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20you are then going to go througha mandatory a rest and recovery periodfor the next 10 days or so your writeris going to be down and outtheir fitness is going to dropdrastically and theyare guaranteed to suffer poor race dayconditionthrough that period so again timing isWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40going to be veryimportant now there's a lot more goingonbesides this 80 90 100 capon your fitness from a few weeks out to13 days out to the objective itself itlooks like the firstlandmark is five weeks out and here'swhy i say thata rebate right now just wentWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00inside in the last two days just waitinside that window where heis five weeks out from his nextobjectiveand he's had a while between his lastobjective my team actually haszero races in the entire month of augustand then only oneobjective left at the end of the seasonWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20and the game by default had my entireteam selectedyou can actually see it in thebackground here the entire team selectedfor the crow races in the croatian raceandwith no objectives at the end of theseason nothing necessary that to worryabouti didn't bother changing it so my wholeteam is pre-selected for thatbut you can look at this right nowaribae his fitness peakWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40you can see it's locked at 90 points andthat's an oldthat's using the old system in a newway we have training we have races thoseare the points that he's picked upyou can see right here fitness 84training points zero points per daycannot push the gaugeWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00beyond 90 and this is what i was talkingaboutthe gauge cannot go beyond 90. butthere's two things that are reallyimportant to know hereremember his fatigue what was he atthree percentthree percent is all the fatigue thatour ebay has well below the markright i now know that the mark is at 40.he's 37below that the old mark was 50. he isWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20extremelyfar below that unlike the old modelwhen you were looking at a writer'sfitness you have yellow barand then you had empty space if they hadhitfatigue as in 50 or above you would geta sliver of red bar like we have here arebate has that sliverWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40but uribe has three points of tirednessthree points of fatigue that's it 40 isway up herehe's nowhere near there's 10. he's atthree points okay we already confirmedthatwhat he has is a limit he has acap on his fitness right now his fitnessiscapped at 90. and if you look at the barWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00red covers 10 percent one thing that isthrowing a lot of experienced pcmplayersoff right now about the new system isyou getthis cap you get this limitation onfitness and you can see it either as asliver like it is nowor twice this size which is that totallyWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20out of windowas in more than five weeks away from anobjective where you're capped at eightyand so then twenty percent of your barisred and then now when we go inside thiswindow five weeks downtill two weeks where we're at90 that cap is now at a sliverWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40but it's still there this red bar canmean one of two thingsit can mean the cap that's limiting yourfitness gainsapproaching objectives or two fatigueand that's why you need this preparationscreen nowmore than what we've ever needed beforeyou can't just see itWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00through that training screen and manageit there and make sure it stays below 50throughout the yearbecause again the old gauge the oldgraph started at 50 and all you had todo was make surethat that red line stayed flat acrossthe bottom you needed a flat lineranything more than flat liner if thatthing started to pop upthen you give them the week off and makeWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20sure they don't train that weekand then that way you can just aboutmaintain95 plus fitness all year long and keepthat bar below 50. now we have to onekeep it below 40 and 2 we can't assumea chunk of red on our fitness bar meansfatigue and therefore needs anWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40adjustment to your training scheduleyou're going to have to go in and seewhere they're actually at but there'sways to see that so it's okaynow the reason why aribe is at 84percentis that two days ago he was capped at80. that hasjust unlocked it looks like he's pickingup two points per dayand so he's gained that so in three daysWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00he'll have picked up the other sixpoints and he'll be sitting at 90fitness until he gets insidetwo weeks and then that'll open to ahundred and thenfive days we'll open him up which meansyou're gonna hityour fitness peaks early you're gonnahit them you're gonna hit that 100Watch at: 16:00 / 16:19fitness before the fitness peak actuallykicks offyou're gonna hit it in a differentmanner this time around so that is onething to keep an eye on now this pieceis hard tojudge my interpretation of the system sofarthis is definitely open for conversationin the comments belowmy interpretation of the system so faris that your fitnessWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40is not a hundred percent tied intothat fitness peak model but it isclosely tied together it's gonna takeobjectives to get that fitness to climbupthey're gonna train on their own andthey're going to train on their ownat those various levels so if you're at80 you could expect your fitness to beWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00somewhere near that 80. but at timesit's going to risenow these are the objectives these halfcirclesand dotted circles these are theobjectives ofa rebase season and if we use him as anexamplegp crunch that we just had you can seehow he got up to 96 percentfor that fitness period in between youWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20can see he was downin down at 80 percent but then he hadthe national championships for japan hegot to95 percent but then he was in betweendidn't drop quite as low but that'sbecause he went in betweentwo objectives quite close together 98starts to dropyou see how it drops and then continuesWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40to dropdrops and then continues to drop webegin to preparefor an objective and it climbs back upthe thing to watch out for hereis what happened when we had threeobjectivesback to back to back end of februaryearly march mid-march thoseWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00three combined over a roughly three weekperiodcouple things happened we had build upfor three objectivesthat led to very low fatigueto massive fatigue in fact we got overthat 40mark and he got into having trouble withWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20his fitnesswe had fitness that started with earlierpreparation and he had to go 90and then he was climbing and climbingand it lasted longer he had higherfitness levelsfor a longer period of time but then byhis second objectivehe was not not training at all becausehe hadfatigue so if you get into a zone whereWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40you actually accumulate fatigue over 40it appears that they're gonna shut downand instead of havinghigh 90s and fitness peaks for theseother two racesa rebate was in bad shape his fitnesswas droppinghe wasn't training he was beating offfatigueit seems that the model is set up inWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00such a waywhere if you get tired they will restif they are not tired they will trainaccording tothe objective model and the objectivemodelif spread out you can maintainfairly high fitness most of the year ifWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20really spread out you're going to see itdrop a bitbut then it's going to climb back up butwhat you're going to avoidis too much fatigue you can see thatpreparing for roan alpsit came back up as we had a second oneclose by but we had a chanceover a one week period to recover takethat restand he was in good shape and it only sawWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40his fitness drop bya marginal amount so havingobjectives a little over a month apartfive weekssix weeks apart if you can maintain thatthroughout the yearyou can maintain a rider at a reallyrelatively strong fitness levelthroughout the yearWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00and have quite a few fitness peaks overthe course of a season you'll get a lotof fitness peaksif you could do it once every six weeksor so back to back to backis dangerous and will lead tocomplicationswith your fitness level that's the maintakeaway hereis if you spread them out a little bitWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20at least a monthto six weeks apart you're going to be ingood shape and you can hit one objectiveafter anotherafter another after another throughoutthe season the last thing before we takea look at the pro cyclistcomparison is how to plan the objectiveshow to effectively plan now the ideaWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40is to set them apart roughly six weeksbut you also want toplay to the strengths of your riders thesystem itself is simplifiedbut one thing that isn't simplifiedabout it ishow to pick them well here's how to dothatyou need to start with your calendar youneed to start with yourWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00sponsor page know what the major racesare where you need your best writers tobeat their best especially if you'replaying a more challenging gamewhere sponsor evaluation mattersand then play to your play to yourwriters strengthsprepare their objectives to the racesWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20that they might actually do well in andif they're gonna be a domestique for arace or if they're justfilling out their calendar to be therejust be a face in the peloton let thatbe the times where they're resting andrecovering and have poor race dayconditionbut have them ready for the races whereWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40you need them to be at their besthere's how to figure that out okay onelook at those sponsor objectives knowwhich races mattermost if you're a team that has ambitionto wina grand tour you better well have yourstage racers on their fitness peaksWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00objective for that major grand touryou need to plan ahead of time solooking backfrom june to july for my team's calendaryou need to know the races in order toknow which writersneed to have that as an objective so wehave the over ustWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20roon ferret one sprint stagetwo punchy stages and aprologue time trial that's a little bitpunchywould i want a sprinter to be at theirbest for that not necessarilybut my punchers i absolutely want themto be at their best for thatWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40so avoid my blanc climbing andpunchinessno sprinters necessary i don't even needto send themto a race like that after lookingthrough your calendaryou can figure out for us gp crunch wasa an important objective we had a threestar objective for thatand even though on paper it's punchy youWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00look at the profileand there's undulation but it'srelatively flat considering and so ifyou could protect your sprinters and ifthey climb decently enough you can getthem to the end which is what we did wetookuh fourth and fifth place on that onewith sprintersthe punchers the top punchers swept theWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20podiumjust ahead of us and we were that closeto to a top three sothere is ways to get inside and and makethings happenbut gp crunch none of my writers hadthat as an objective initiallyi had to add that in there and who did iadd that in there fora rebate and if you know my career modeWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40servicerelenew my best punchy and sprintguys add objectives when and where youneedfor the right races the good thingabout the new system unlike the oldsystemis when you get here you're only goingto haveraces that are actually on your calendarWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00to choose from there's a lot of races inseptemberbut we only have two choices andyou at least get a brief overview ofwhat the profile isnot that it's always terribly accurategp crunch punchybut sprinters did just fine with thatWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20onebut this is the key when you want to addobjectives when you want to manage yourobjective schedulethis is the best place to do it from thewriters tab under objectiveschoose your writer and then this istheir list of objectives that alreadyexistif they haven't happened yet you can xthem out you can cancel them out we onlyWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40have one lefton the year and then you can go in andadd objectives this wayselect the one you need select the monthselect the race you're gonna get anoverviewof their whole calendar year the breakis the important one to know and here isthe best way to manage your objectivesoutside of getting the correctWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00race for the correct writer outside ofgettingthe team leaders in a major racethose come first but after that to buildout your calendarthe best thing is to manage peaks andvalleysand what we discovered is that you needto keep fatigue below 40.Watch at: 25:00 / 25:20to do that you should spread out yourobjectives roughly every six weeksthen you want to maintain high fitnessso you want to keep them relativelyclose together you want to have afairly decent number of objectivesthroughout the season and then we alsoknowthat you're kept at 80 when you're morethan five weeks outsideof an objective so you don't want to beWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40more than five weeks outside of anobjective very oftenand then you're capped at 90 so fitnessis going to rise fitness is going to bebetter and then inside 13 days before anobjectiveit opens up to 100 meaning your fitnesscan go high you can get a plusone on your race day condition on a raceWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00that isn't the objective itselfso one thing you can do is startcoupling races together now if we lookata rebate here we had three racesin just over a week and then we had arecoveryand then we had our next race now if itwasn't for the fact that theseWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20three were back to back to backwhich didn't pan out if we hadeliminated oneespecially one down the middle and hadjust the twohe would have done just fine he hadwould have had the weeks in betweenand he could have raced more over thatperiod of timeyou can benefit fromWatch at: 26:20 / 26:40if rhone alps is your focus attour de jura you end up with good raceday conditionif you pick torah de jura and leave outrhone alpswell then you're in your recovery weekwhen you hitroan alps and therefore you're in sadWatch at: 26:40 / 27:00shape and you don't want to be at thatrace and then you only get the benefitof oneso one thing you can do about couplingthese togetheris you set the objective as the one atthe endof a window of a few weeks of racing youcan hit that few weeks of racing havehighstrong fitness throughout that with theobjective right at the endand then have a little rest and recoveryWatch at: 27:00 / 27:20periodwhen the team doesn't have races or thatriderdoesn't have races scheduled one thingthat can really help management of ateamis if you have groups of writers if youhavea group of classics writers or if youhave a group ofWatch at: 27:20 / 27:40domestiques or let's say you have enoughridersof enough quality to have two groups ofdomestiquesthis is probably one of the easiestplaces for this one to be servedtwo groups of domestiques are not goingto haveany primary objectives they're not goingto have any races that they'respecialized for they're not going toWatch at: 27:40 / 28:00have any racesthat you need them at to serve as leaderthey're going to go and support writersif you can staggertwo groups of domestiques as one groupisbuilding and then having fitness peakand one group is recoveringif you go back and forth between themstaggered by everyWatch at: 28:00 / 28:20three to four weeks well then all of asuddenyou'll have a group of domestiques fouror soalways readily available for any raceany environment any time during the yearto then go and assist leaders and be ona plus three plus fourWatch at: 28:20 / 28:40and while still not being good enough tocompete instead of getting dropped atkilometer 60they're still around at kilometer 170until you're getting into that finalclimbgiving your leader support for that muchlongerbeing that much more effective as adomestique pro cyclist mode nowand the same screen for preparation isWatch at: 28:40 / 29:00here and evidentand you can see i've got a coupleback-to-backs here thatmaybe i don't want to have maybe we'regoing to overdo that maybe i want toreadjust thatand then we have a couple ofback-to-backs again here laterso i might want to cut back on that aswe've already seen you can see here wehad justtwo back-to-back objectives and lookWatch at: 29:00 / 29:20what happenedwe got the fatigue up over 40 and thatwas enoughand then you see the crash after you cansee how hard we fallto recover from that fatigueand for the second one we weren't ingreat shape at allyou really do want to try to spreadthese out one objectiveWatch at: 29:20 / 29:40every five to six weeks in pro cyclistmodeunder writer and training you have thesame objectives tab that we have incareer modewith all the same functionality thatprepares your seasonthe only difference is that when we havean additional fitness tabwhere you can manually adjust yourWatch at: 29:40 / 30:00training scheduleyou can manually adjust to take care ofthat fatigueyou can manually adjust to try to pickup that fitness and maintain higherfitness levelsthroughout the course of the seasonwhile similarly trying to manage thatfitness levelbut or the fatigue level but ultimatelyyou're stilllocked within that same objective systemWatch at: 30:00 / 30:20the key here figuring out how to do thatevery five to six weekvariance what i've seen so far in termsof yourfitness level and what it does for youanything82 and below is a minus one i'veconfirmed that 84Watch at: 30:20 / 30:40and above is zero on race day conditioni don't know if 83 is one way or theother as i have not had that entering arace just yet to seeif that works but for that expected raceday conditionit looks like your target is about 84and abovethat way you don't have negatives youdon't want negatives negativesWatch at: 30:40 / 31:00hurt they make everything so much moredifficultespecially when you take a big negativeand you have weak stamina resistancealreadyand that seems to be more greatlyaffected than your other attributesthat's the only real difference betweenpro cyclist andthe career mode is how that impactsWatch at: 31:00 / 31:20but again no tiredness but when you areoutside of that windowyou are going to get that red barregardless that's that big key becauseso many people have freaked outthat they are fatigued when they're notactually fatiguedit's just that cap being set so makesure you use thepreparation tab to see in the proWatch at: 31:20 / 31:40cyclist mode we also have that samescreen here the training schedule underthe fitness tabwhich is not there in the career modeany longer all right folks quick recaptraining schedule is now zero to 100instead of 50 to 100.fatigue is now setting offWatch at: 31:40 / 32:00at 40 instead of 50. the red baron your fitness peak as you're enteringraces does notnecessarily mean that your writer isfatigued but canmean that they are capped away from anobjective you are cappedat 80 when you're five weeks outor outs more than five weeks out from anobjectiveWatch at: 32:00 / 32:20you're capped at 90 when you are morethan two weeks out from an objectiveand you only access the 100 and fitnesspeak when youapproach an objective following anyobjectiveyou are guaranteed you are going to seea a break you're going to see a recoveryperiod in which case you want to timeWatch at: 32:20 / 32:39those carefullyfor your leaders time things around yourbig racesfor most of your better writers you wantto time thingson the right races for those writersbut roughly spread

  1. Pro Cycling mode:

    I believe it’s only the visuals that has changed, the core system is still the same. It’s still extremely easy to get 99% fitness through feb. to des. With no variasion. With 3 points in fitness (or traning, don’t remember the name) tiredness is no problem.

    From my experience you get light fatigue at 25, if the haven’t changed it after I got 3 points I fitness.

    To get 99% through the year pick a goal as early as possible. Choose max fitness at that goal. Remove all other training the rest of the year and you will have 99% fitness throughout the year.

    This is not my findings, honor goes to Killrobplays ( I have tested it and it does work (regrettably). The new system is actually easier than the old one.

    Career mode:

    Tried the strategy in career mode. Chose Uni X, put everyone at max form at start. All had earliest goal selected and I deleted all training other than for the first goal (I chose the automatic setting).

    Almost every biker had 99% fitness from late January through end of April. Simulated through Vuelta Asturias. Lowest fitness was a 93, but I think that was because they didn’t ride any races.

    Had a couple of riders at 40+ tiredness, but they had been racing almost all races they could. If you manage your riders (I didn’t here. I just simulated to see the progression of the fitness and tiredness), I don’t think keeping tiredness low is a problem. Most stayed at 15 – 25 fatigue.


  2. I still have issues with the timing of fitness peaks (as opposed to peak fitness). It starts building for the 1st objective, then as soon as it's over it starts building for the next one, doesn't reach it in time, from then on the fitness peaks are out of sync with the actual objectives. If you went e.g UAE, Tirenno, Giro or even TDF you might not even have a peak during the Giro or TDF. I'm not sure if the full green compared to the 95% green affects this and you can use full green for the ones you want the peak as opposed to high fitness. Any thoughts on this?
