Since 1903, the illustrious Tour de France cycling competition has been captivating fans with its exhaustive, winding tour of the French countryside. It attracts competitors from around the world who attempt to win the 23-day, 3,500-kilometer race.

Just in time for this year’s race, which goes through July 26, the official “Tour de France 2015” ($3.99) game for Windows Phone will put you in the rider’s seat in a way you never thought possible.

This cycling simulation lets you create a team of cyclists; select your riders; customize your team name, jersey, and national flag; and lead them to victory through all 21 official stages. More than 110 riders are available to populate your team.

Get ahead of the competition by analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of each of your cyclists, and then develop a strategy that’ll end with you wearing the winner’s yellow jersey.

This year’s edition introduces a brand-new artificial intelligence — gameplay adapts based on the real-world rider’s personal style and actions made during previous stages, making them even more difficult to beat.

You can also compete against thousands of players around the world in multiplayer mode in weekly and daily tournaments. “Tour de France 2015” includes a new multiplayer mode, Team Valor, that defines your racing style.

Personally, I enjoy tinkering with my bike, unlocking new upgrades to squeeze a little extra speed and power out of it. You can upgrade the pedals, wheels, frame, and more.
