Sorry if I've missed this in the rulebook, but just curious as to the movement range of the two cyclists' energy(movement) cards. The exhaustion cards are all 2 right? Thanks!

I will upload the reference card shortly. Thought I had done so

In brief, each card is represented 3 times, so each rider has 15 cards total.

Rouleur: 3-7 (avg. = 5)
Sprinter: 2-5, 9 (avg. = 4,6)

Regards
Asger

What Jere said! Sprinters effectively start with three two's, and are thus somewhat exhausted compared to rouleurs.

Interesting. I would have thought that the sprinters would have had more higher numbers and the rouleurs a higher average. I assume that it works in the game though!

In a flat sprint the sprinters will go 27 spaces on their last three moves, compared to 21 for rouleurs. That is a massive difference

Even at 18 vs 14 it is pretty big!

Besides the names might be a little misleading if you think about them in pure cycling terms. I wanted a clearly different feel to each rider but I still wanted a rouleur to have a chance at winning a flat sprint, and a sprinter a chance in the mountains. Preferably always in the 70/30 split range

If the pack travels together then the 8% loss of average speed isn't a big problem. However if they split, and the pace is increased then it does become an issue. Especially when mountains are involved and sprinters find it really hard to keep going 5 unless they spend a 9 (which REALLY hurts long term!).

And now the relevant reference card has been uploaded One in each player colour, with the phase order and key-concepts on the back!
