I would like to see a new competition replace Local Legends. It would be the 'Mayor' of a segment. I hear little chatter about LL and I don't think many people are interested in it. Either popular routes are dominated by commuters who aren't even competing or it is possible to be LL on some segments with 2 rides. 90 days is far too short and this basically forces you to take the same routes, not exactly encouraging people to ride more and explore. The Mayor prize would be for consistant riding, a rolling yearly target of the lowest maybe three times on a segment. This would elimiate Q/KOM carpet baggers and car drivers. Email awards could be sent at the end of the year to avoid unwanted spam during the year. If you are Mayor on Dec 31st you get the award, but can challenge during the year.
