Another week and another round of news to catch you all up on! Who would have thought that the off-season would be this busy!!
PCM.Daily DB Stats Update
The long promised post-Vuelta stats update has finally arrived! First mentioned back in #138 Alakagom posted the new .cdb file on Wednesday. It includes a new database with fully updated rider stats up to and including this years Vuelta. So now you can play PCM14 with the most accurate stats yet!
You do need the PCM.Daily 2014 DB V1 installed to make it work, but let's be honest you've all got it already. Instructions are simple: 1) Extract the .cdb, 2) Place the .cdb file in Documents/Pro Cycling Manager 2014/Mod/Database, 3) Select it in-game on the options menu, 4) Enjoy!
There is planned to be a final update including post-WC stats to come this year, though an eta is still unknown. Download the latest update here!
PCM.Daily Stages Expansion Pack
Alongside the new stats update perhaps you want some new stages? Well here at PCM.Daily we are always aiming to please and have released a Variant DLC for you to enjoy. The stages pack includes 496 new stages to use in PCM14 for the WorldTour and World and National Championships. Grab the action here!
Members DB for PCM13
Those of you with PCM13 might be feeling a bit left out with all the new PCM14 updates, but don't fear! Jesleyh's Members DB has been converted to PCM13, thanks to Bikex. Unfortunately some of the new stages and races are non-compatible but an effort has been made to keep things different and fun. Otherwise the teams and riders are just the same as in the PCM14 version. Pick up the fun here!
The weekly look at the Man-Game is here again. La Vuelta still dominates the PT news where Oscar Avelino of Prio-Porto won the latest stage, Stage 10. Local hero Justo Tenorio of Santander leads the race but legend Alberto Contador is right on his wheel as are several other pre-race favorites.
Some of the PCT's best climbers took a trip to France for the Tour des Pays de Savoie, where after 4 days Janez Brajkovic continues Heineken-Cal Giant's run of success with the GC victory. We also witnessed Chris Froome win his first classic of the season for QuickStep in the GP Onda-Boavista.
Whilst CT teams have been at the above races they recently had a big showdown of their own in the Transfagarasan GP, a mountainous classic. Peilun Wu of Siam Cement-Lenovo attacked early and rode smartly to outwit his breakaway companion on the line.
Lastly we had yet another PCT/CT rankings update to conclude the month of May. It's an exciting season full of surprise and thrill and you can read the latest here.
Thread of the Week
As always i finish off with Thread of the Week. With racing all but finished those threads are pretty quiet meaning off-topic discussion take the fore. I'm With Stupid continues to run strongly, and the Music thread has been active. But yet again it goes to Café Pedro 9: Nein, nein, nein! for continued general chat, and this week an actual amount of actual chat.
