I bet you could win a lot of money with that career
I do yeah. I win most races I enter, when my riders have good form. Last year I met all my sponsor goals, and this year so far I have achieved them all too. I guess playing on normal difficulty is too easy for me in some cases.
Still, even though I win a lot, I seem to spend all my money anyway. Maybe it's because I have 4 expensive trainers and a scout working all year round. I definitely need the earnings, which is why I haven't increased the difficulty yet.
Also, while I'm able to easily win classics and flat stages with strategic breakaways, when it comes to direct rider skill like in sprints and mountains, I don't do better than the PC at all. I'm afraid that if I move to hard difficulty I'll have a really hard time on those areas, because of a severe disadvantage.

Actually, I meant with betting (maybe not money, but some PCM$) If de Gendt has finished 3rd in Giro and the career predicted which team Ian Butler would say "Contador won't go to", just look at the 2012 Tour winner and put all your PCMs on him when the time comes
Of course it is random, but not totally, and it is good that is is like that.
If you could get and keep every rider you want, then the game would become boring fast.
Like in real life, some athletes try to find a better contract or team. Maybe they want a better role or more money or just because they hate the trainer, coach, manager, or they are not feeling liked by them.
Disagree. I'm happy that I won't be able to gather all the world's superstars in one team, but that should happen because they don't want to be in the same team with a guy who has the same goals (ie. you shouldn't be able to have Andy Schleck and Contador at the same time), not because of a lottery that decides if a rider signs with team x, y or z or even ends up free.
Because quite frankly, seeing Cavendish at Euskaltel, Mathias Frank at CCC Polkowice or Gilbert AND Schleck without a team for 1/2 seasons sucks, because it's incredibly unrealistic
