Extra Live has released an official game of the Tour de France 2011 for the iOS platform, allowing players to build a team and race virtually in the world’s biggest and oldest cycling event. Players must assemble, manage and train their own team of five cyclists and race against challenging AI opponents across 21 realistic stages of the Tour. Riders of varying styles such as rouleur, baroudeur, sprinter and climber are available with varying physical abilities allowing players to build their ideal team and players must employ real cycling strategy and cycling tactics to beat the AI opponents who will be using their own tactics to win.

Races travel through the real 21 stages of the Tour de France with true-to-life locations, vivid scenery and names and features from the climbs of Mont Ventoux to the flat laps of the Champs-Élysées. A unique Facebook integration feature allows players to ask for moral support from their friends—the game posts a message to the player’s Facebook wall and each “Like” received on the post will add energy points to give riders an instant boost in the game. Tour de France 2011 - The Official Game is available in two versions: Tour de France 2011 ($3) for the iPhone and iPod touch and Tour de France 2011 HD ($4) for the iPad.
