A Leaderboard where, instead of your single best ever time, it is the average of your best 3 times. The more I think about it, the more it sounds fun.
1. Local riders get more incentive, more reward and a better experience for riding their local segments.
2. Once you've got the KOM for a segment, it can be hard to motivate going back. Strava could be more enjoyable if it gave me a bit more carrot to get the bike out and, with this, I have to do the segment 3 times. That sounds like a great challenge to motivative me.
3. It stops the Tour of Britain, or other suitably quick TT riders and/or other race, from speeding through one time and taking your precious KOM.
4. It means it will be much more competitive to take a KOM. Say, on a good day, I can beat the current KOM by a few seconds; I will have to do that 2 more times with this Leaderboard to take the KOM. That makes things really interesting.
Thanks for submitting your idea on consistency XOMs. It has been reviewed by our moderation team and is now open to voting.
I like the idea, but only as an additional leaderboard while maintaining the original KOM leaderboard based off the single-fastest time. It would be fun to see who can repeat their performance on a segment.
