Pro Cycling Manager 2007 is a cycling team management game. It is available on PC and PSP. It was released prior to the 2007 Tour de France. The objective of the game is to take control of one of sixty teams in the game and lead them through several seasons as their manager, with duties including signing new riders, training, budgeting and scheduling races.
There are 61 teams in the game, 20 ProTour and 41 Continental, as well as National Teams for the World Championships. 18 of the 20 UCI ProTour teams are fully licensed, with only Astana and Unibet not licensed (They are instead called Kazakstana and Unibotte.com). Of the 41 Continental teams, most are unlicensed and have the team and riders' names based on the real thing, but not quite real (For example: Alexandre Venokourov).
There are over 1500 riders available for use in the game. Riders will progress through their careers just as you progress through your career. The player must nurture the young riders and turn them into stars of the future. Riders have to be scouted, trained and cared for.
The game includes the full ProTour calendar as well as many Continental races from across the globe.
