April Challenges...something hokey is going on.


So that guy is currently leading both the distance (1353km) and climbing (30,212m) challenges for April.  Perhaps it is including all the rides he ever did in April, of any year because looking at his profile page it looks to me like he has 2 rides this month for 34.3 miles and 6,459ft of climbing.

What gives?



  • Okay, the user from the OP is now off the leader board, but now we have this person who climbed 74,000ft over 23 miles, an astonishing 3000+ feet per mile or an average gradient of almost 60%!  I assume at this point it is bad data and that Strava goes through periodically and cleans up the issues, just looking for confirmation.

  • Can anyone let me know why my result for the April Cycling Challenge (over 1400 km) has been deleted from the chart? I also got no trophy. Since I am part of a challenge, my kilometers matter and so I'd wish them to be seen as well on the challenge cart as in my own trophy collection. I will include a screen shot as proof that I accomplished the challenge.

    By the way, I sent an email to Strava Help about this, they responded by giving me no answer, case closed, something like that.

    All the best for all of you,
