Leaderboards only by year - collate previous years leaderboards by year
Having segment leader board entries increase by thousands each year is not sustainable and will dilute motivation. The way to resolve this is to have the leader boards collated by year. Previous years standings can then be accessed by year. This keeps the competition element active and has the added benefit of tracking your own progress over several years. It will probably also make the the servers job easier in the long run. This type of arrangement is used by the concept 2 on line log: With that log each year your enthusiasm is renewed knowing that a new race is started. This could also give the opportunity to clean up some of the segments.
