How often does this community flag a Top 10 (or KOM/QOM) Strava record? I saw this previous thread on “Etiquette of flagging rides” but this is different.
Today, I went up one of the “unfriendly” and “fun” hills for an interval during Avalance Spire +1 TR Outdoor ride on the trails on the gravel bike. The climb is .6mi at 13% but the middle third is 21%. Both are Strava segments. Looking today at the ranking, I checked the top 10. Now, I wasn’t trying for a KOM or Top 10 but merely to complete the ascent maintaining traction and without stopping. A few of the Top 10 appeared to be either pro or all-but-pro team riders, but a couple stuck out. One in particular, 4th place, was a regular looking dude that appeared older than me. The age isn’t is, but looking at his ride stats, I saw he rides a lot less than me, and did so last Feb when he took 4th on the climb. Then I saw his pictures, and he’s riding an e-bike and he’s riding with others on e-bikes. On the ride he took this particular Top 10, he took a few others.
Two questions. Would you flag his ride? (I did.) How often do you check the top 10?
