Why aren't the segments of MTB and eMTB not the same? it's easy, just create 2 different rankings for each existing segment, one for MTB and one for eMTB. me and my friends who switched to eMTB, we realized that there are very few segments marked for eMTB, less than 10% compared to those for MTB. 


All segments are created by the users for each activity type.  If you are not seeing e-mtb segments you would like to see, it is really easy to make them.  Personally, I would love to start over with a clean slate like the e-mtb category did and not end up with all of the bad and duplicate segments created in the early days of mountain biking and just the regular "ride" category.  

Another reason that may contribute to why they don't just make all "ride" segments copy over from "ride" to "e-bike ride" is that e-bikes are not allowed in all the same places.  It would automatically be creating segments for a sport in many areas that it is illegal to do that sport which would convey a bad message.  I know of a number of areas around where I am at that do not currently allow e-bikes, but "regular" bikes are allowed.

Where I come from, in an area of ​​40km there are hundreds of segments and all the cyclists in the area know them by name. Segment names are a way of describing the ride you just took. All the segments that are done in MTB are also done with the eMTB, so why have 2 different names for the same segment??? Better to have 1 segment with 2 leaderboards than having 2 equal segments with 2 leaderboards!


The same applies to running, hiking, and walking segments. There is little reason for those being separate sets of segments. They are often duplicated.

Yeah you basically have to recreate them for the new sport, ebike. But it would be great to have one set of segments for all biking disciplines, and one leaderboard per discipline on each segment.
