Another flat race that suits sprinters so I managed to win this race yet again by picking the rider M.Covandish (Omega Pharma) who is an amazing sprinter. For feeds choose 2 Energy Gels (recovers Red bar).

As soon as race starts, press cn_start and forward the race until there is about 15km remaining in race. If there are any riders ahead of the peloton by more than 3 minutes at this point then it might be wise to just start again as it's unlikely that they will be caught.

Covandish will usually be near the front of the peloton at this point but if he's not then don't panic. Just move your way up the peloton to around 5th-10th place and stay there behind any rider (holding cn_RB behind a rider near the front comes in handy here) and be ready to attack when there is 5km remaining. Counter attack any rider that tries to breakaway beforehand and keep right behind them so as to not burn too much energy. You are going to need a full red bar before starting your final attack and at least 20% of yellow (if you have simulated most of the race then you should have plenty remaining). Now with 5km remaining press cn_Y to bring up your feeds and press cn_Y again to select one of your Energy Gels (this will give you a longer sprint time by boosting your Red bar). Now go into the high (large) gear and sprint cn_Y as fast as you can towards the finish line. There is a sharp bend that is possible to take at full speed but be careful not to hit the barrier by getting the trajectory totaly wrong. Remember you should still have another Energy Gel should you need it. Covendish should be able to beat anyone to the finish line if you time your attack right. I ended up winning by 34 seconds smile.

I'd advise to make a SAVE with about 10km remaining in case you make a mistake near the end. You can then quit out and reload your save game that will take you back to the 10km point.

Keep at it and you will get it eventually.

PS Marko Covandish is actually meant to be Mark Cavandish but due to licence restrictions his real name can't be used warning
