Pro Cyclist - Cyclist's evolution
XP and level upYour XP gauge is displayed in the band at the bottom of the main screen.
As a young professional rider of 19 years of age, you begin at the bottom of the ladder, at level 1..
Each time that the gauge is totally filled, you level up. Your gains change depending on the level:
- a skill point (each level).
- a choice of enhanced attributes or potential (at each level in the beginning and less regularly thereafter).
- access to more prestigious races (levels 6/9/13/17).
You can see your rider’s evolution curve on the Training>Progression page.
Experience Points are mainly gained by fulfilling the objectives set by your manager during races, as well as through other occasional achievements. Other gains are automatically registered each week through training.
BECOME LEADER AND CHOOSE YOUR TEAM-MATESBy drawing attention to yourself by your performances and by achieving the objectives set by your manager, you will earn the chance to become a leader within your team. This will allow you to have team-mates with you during races, supporting you all the way to victory. You can thus control them, to some extent during races in order to, for example, set up a sprint train in front of your rider or to protect you inside the peloton. Being a leader also allows you to choose you preferred team-mates for a race, under certain conditions:
- be among the best riders in the team.
- have reached level 5.
- have a manager satisfaction of, at least, 75%.
As of April, your agent will give you a list of teams with whom it may be possible to envisage a contract for the next season. You must use contacts of interest to target one or several teams on this list in order to increase your chances of receiving an offer from them.
Later on, starting in August, you will receive offers. You are more likely to receive offers from teams who interest you.
