It would be great to see the ranking of the best cyclist types (like best climber, sprinter, downhill rider, allrounder etc.) in a certain area. This would motivate even more than the segment rankings.


  • Definition of a region, area (kingdom, empire 😊😞 Circular region with a radius of 50 kilometers with a certain minimum number of athletes (of one discipline). E.G. 1'000.
  • To determine the ranking of the best climbers for example, the rankings of all segments in the region (as soon as part of the segment lies within the region, the segment belongs to the region) are taken into account from a certain gradient onwards. It would also be possible to create even more detailed rankings, e.g. short / long distance or very steep / medium-steep climbers.
  • In order to evaluate the segment performances adequately or fairly for the ranking, they must be weighted by the number of athletes who have already ridden the segment. In addition, segments that partially or completely overlap may not be fully weighted (e.g. the longest of such an overlapping sequence of segments could be fully weighted, the second 50%, the third 33%, the fourth 25%, etc.).  

Such a function surely would be nice but unfortunately it's way too complicated to ever be implemented. Strava can't even list all the segments in a rectangle of someones choosing. Thus making additional computings with overlappings, gradients, distances and so on is doomed from the start.
