Segment leaderboards now include weather conditions

Return to latest news

Segments are a great way to measure your performance over short stretches of a ride, run or walk but up until now the segment leaderboards have not been telling the whole story.

With today’s update all segment leaderboards include the weather conditions experienced during an activity and, mostly importantly, how the wind direction affected it. This makes is super simple to see if the leaderboard if full of tailwind efforts or if a headwind has slowed down your performance.

Segment weather conditions

Each activity is now attributed with headwind, head crosswind, crosswind, tail crosswind or tailwind classification. It also include the wind speed, direction and temperature experienced during the activity. See it in action here and here.

It’s the second weather related update this week which we hope you like. If you’d like to create segments from your own activities then they are easy to set up. Here’s how.

Have fun.
