The game has been released - and so has the very first patch for Pro Cycling Manager 2011.
There's a bunch of fixes in every part of the game. For example, breakaways will no longer manage to stay away as much as they did before the patch, and national champions will now be properly set after winning the NC for the 2nd time.
