Career mode planning: PCM 21 VS 20
I dislike the objective system in PCM 20 where you can choose three races for a few randomly picked team leaders and their domestiques. However, I'm not sure if PCM 21's planner is that much better. Seems like a painstaking task to handpick objectives for each individual team member.

So which has the lesser of two evils?
Finding it much easier in 2021. Choose 3-4 well spaced objectives for each rider class and off you go. Less complex, no conflicts and leader issues. Taking me about a third of the time to setup.
Better in 2021.
Was gamebreaking for me the random choice of leaders, at the point of spending hours to edit the database.

But yes, the new system has flaws: would be nice to have an instruction for team-mates to follow the leader's obkective program
Well it's half an improvement. Picking objectives is great once you have gone through the painstaking exercise of filling up the races then for each rider on the objectives screen you can see what races they are down for and quite easily pick their objectives.

The complete and total fail though is having any kind of clue when they might hit their fitness peak. I'm still experimenting and open to correction but so far I have hit on:-

1. Forget about Jan-Feb for objectives. They won't make it and when they do hit peak they will probably be 85% fitness.

2. Even if they have enough time but not enough races they still might be late hitting peak and yet again be at sub 90% fitness.

3. I need to pick enough objectives to fill up 3 weeks (the length of their peak) which is neat as long as, yet again, they hit the peak when they should. So that might be 1 objective if it's a grand tour or 3 one days races a week apart for example.

4. I need to put the next targeted fitness peak roughly 10+ weeks after the previous one to give them enough time (3 weeks at peak followed by anything from 6-8 weeks preparation depending on how many race days they have).

The upshot is the planning of objectives is great wheras the predicting of when a fitness peak will hit is a disaster. Expect many objectives to be riden at a bare +1 at 88%.
