List My Top 10s or "Almost KOMs"

On the KOM page, could you also put a section that would list my "Top 10s"? (or Top 5s) This would be a list of the segments that you've almost made a KOM (but didn't and are still in the top 5 or 10). Some of us are old and we ride where lots of people ride. We get some top 10s, but not a lot of KOMs. Do you feel me?

  • Agreed - where there are lots of riders, its pretty unlikely that we "more seasoned" will get a KOM but its still good to see where we're in with a shout.  I'm always filtering out all but my age band, too.  I also suggested an "Age-band KOM".  I know the accent should be on personal performance and whether we're getting better as individuals, but I can't help but feel the need to chase a KOM or two.

    Cheers

  • I was just about to write a suggestion when I saw this post. This would be great for the reasons above, but also to see which segments you are close to getting KOM so you have something to strive for.  Or if you had one, you could quickly see who stole it.

  • Top ten would be great for those of us who are mere mortals...

  • Totally agree. I have little chance to get a KOM on a segment where there are a significant amount of riders, but have a decent chance of getting some top 10's. And knowing top 10's will show up on th KOM page, is a great incentive to go after them (the top 10's)!

  • An overall top ten kom and an age-band kom both sound a step forward to recognise achievement not just the winners.  In every other sport you have a podium so why not a top 10 for Strava!

  • I think a top 10 listing is a great idea, in addition to the KoMs, mainly as an aid to tracking your progress towards the KoM of a segment. I know that I have a few second places here and there along with lots of top tens, but unless I review all of my rides then check the current leaderboards for each segment to see if my results still stand I have no way of identifying possible KoM targets. So come on Strava introduce this feature please. Or expand the API once more and let someone else have a crack.

  • I agree - I don't have a lot of KOMs or top 10s but would like to see them, and find them easily.

  • The segments make each ride much more enjoyable, trying to improve on your previous times is a great incentive to push that little bit harder on certain stretches.  Being in the top 10 is a great achievement and it would be great to be able to see these all in one place and would enable you to be able to concentrate on trying to achieve that KOM for that stretch the next time around knowing you are close.  Come on Strava, keep moving forward.

  • Hi everyone,

    I think having an expanded list of overall segment leaderboard achievements is a great idea. Please keep voting up this suggestion!

  • I'd like this feature too, but more to help identify the segments that I'm nearly KOM on, so that next time round that way I should make an extra effort. As others have said.
    So there are two clear reasons to implemented this feature - please upvote (click "me-too")

  • I'd say an additional "10-20" page to show where you are just within reach of the top 10 but not there yet.  Great motivation to go out and try to make it within the top 10.

  • Since top 10 achievements are listed as trophies, it would seem reasonable to capture them in the trophy case or KOM/CR section

  • I would like to see this feature for the same reason A Dobbie posted above.  I want to be able to easily locate the segments where I'm currently in the top few spots but not CR holder, so that I can then go out and try to challenge for the CR! :)

  • I would love to see this added.  The Top Ten's already show up as a trophy, I can see a reason why its not in the trophy case.  It would be really nice to be able to see all of your top ten's.

  • Try a website called veloviewer.com  It connects to your Strava runs and creates summaries of your rides. You can easily see your positions on all segments and apply all sorts of filters. If you are a stats geek or want to see your positions easily try it out. There's few points to consider about making your data viewable to others but you can restrict access through your profile. I have 14 top tens which was news to me.

  • This is a general issue.  You get a medallion for 8/10 on a segment, but not 12/5973.    In general, medallions should go to the top N places for a segment where N is a linear function of the number of qualifying efforts (Nevents) so far on the segment, for example:

    N = 3 + floor[ Nevents / 100]

    Thus in the limit of an infinite number of users the top 1% get medallions.

    Alternately a separate medallion series could be established:

    top 0.1%

    top 1%

    top 5%

     

    These medallions could be in addition to the top 10, where the top 10 get precedence.

  • It would be a useful feature to allow all top 10 achievements (as well as tied KOM's) to be shown on a summary profile page. As there are many pro riders now using Strava there are many KOM's that are completely unachievable for recreational cyclists and being able to see where a top 10 status has been achieved would be useful. This feature would be something that I would keep my paid subscription for at renewal time as that has true value compared to some of the enhanced filters that you provide now.

  • Just made the very same suggestion on the Strava facebook page and was directed here. Totally agree. There is no chance I will ever get a KOM but I have a lot of top 10s I am very proud of and would love to see them all grouped together in some sort of trophy case.

  • It would be useful to have an improved link to personal records and estimated best efforts for deeper analysts and allows you to view best effort for every typical distance (including Miles)

    Also every run should give the estimated best effort for every typical distance below the total distance, so if you ran 10 miles you should have your 10 mile time plus 5k time 10k time etc
