Creating new segment and previous results appearing on new segment?

If I create a new segment will it pull all previous results on that segment for all riders and update the leaderboard?  Or does it just start from that day forward?  Thanks

  • That's a good question.  When I've created a segment, all historical rides along that segment show up on the leaderboards.  Yet, there's at least one segment, "Blije Rijers - Cooter Lake / Florida Trail", that somebody created in Jan 2015 which shows only rides after it's creation.  The trail's been there for 20 years, I rode on it in 2014, and none of those earlier rides show up.  

    I would like the programming staff to explain, please.

  • Good question... Any input from the Strava team to explain the actual behavior?

  • It's historical - ALL previous activities are taken into account.

    There does appear to be some odd behaviour at times on some segment history, but 99.9% of segments report all activities.

  • I'm note the same problem when I create a new segment. I rode a single route to my work every day, and at last ride, I create a segment to check my ride time to work. Well, only the last ride appears in the segment. The other ones was ignored. How to recalculate to include the past activities?

  • After creating a new segment it will take a while for it to populate with historic data - usually quite a few hours, so during this process the leaderboard will show only recent times (depending how far it's got back into historical data).  This confused/flattered me with the first couple I created.

  • Yes I agree with the above comment by John Ford . It takes a while for the segment to pull the Historical data. So until that is done the creator owns the KOM :) of this newly created segment. At time i have also observed that the newly created segment would not pull complete historical data/ even update data post - creation. I simply deleted to recreate the same, and it worked. Now it displays data altogether.
