To me Strava is primarily about motivation and KOM gongs/trophies are a big part of this. As you get older it gets harder to compete for overall KOM/QOM gongs. So it would be good to have age group gongs, i.e. top 10 in age group.

I agree with this. We shouldn't be kicked into the long grass because we are old and no longer matter as athletes. We are premium subscribers and entitled to appropriate recognition for the fact that we are still making the effort to complete against each other 

Thanks.

Segment age group and weight class leaderboards are already available in the App and on the Web. Here is what it looks like on the web:

Ryan, I know about the leader boards, I’m talking about the top ten gongs similar to those you get for the KOM/QOM that are visible to everyone viewing the activity.

Oh I see sorry you want segment trophies (gongs??) for getting top 10 within an age group. I think this would be better than the bloated badges for segment PRs (don't give me a PR badge for third place the third time I complete that segment...)

Sorry, yes gongs = trophies. I’m still clinging on to a small handful of KOM trophies, but it would motivate me massively if I can continue this with my peer group.  Of course an overall KOM/QOM/top ten trophy would usurp an age group trophy.

  • Giggi, absolutely agree. Unfortunately folk are only likely to give this idea kudos if they are in one of the older (or should I say ‘more senior’) age groups so it’s not going to get as high a rating as perhaps it deserves.

It would be interesting to see what the Strava administrators think about this - especially if they are not in an age group that’s not directly affected by this. I hate the idea of cluttering up Strava with trophies but this seems like it would give recognition to a large proportion of their subscription base.

@ScottyB this is an interesting discussion. Would you mind editing the subject of your idea to include the word "trophies" or specify the kind of achievement you'd hope to see? You can also see if there's a fitting label to add to your suggestion. This way it'll be easier for others to search and vote on, too.

Hi Soren,

how do I edit the title?
