The actual KOM is 35.5 by the guy who got removed and 35.3 by me. But I doubt it'll be long until the Simon West has got KOM with a higher speed than 35.5.
I'm pretty sure I could have gone faster, I was looking at my speedo noticing I was constantly around 36mph but I know I needed to change gear to get more power but did not. Infact, I could have probably done better staying staying sat down.
Looking at the other 34.6 ones they are actually lower than 34.6
I hope Strava is not like this with all segments?
Just the really short fast ones, I mentioned earlier in the thread so I'll quote myself.
"On such a short segment and 1-3 second GPS updates, inaccuracies are inevitable. You'll either be robbed or gifted. In this case the guy was gifted.
When you compare different efforts they are of different lengths because of the coarse GPS updates. What Strava could do is implement an interpolation algorithm to make things a little more fair, maybe one day, maybe never."
GPS itself isn't anywhere near as accurate as it should be for this kind of whacky race.
If you really want it, just keep hammering at it and eventually luck will swing your way in terms of the GPS updates being timed perfectly for the segment. You need reasonable conditions too and of course, good legs at the time.
Check out the new "Velo viewer" website, you can get it to calculate times on segments in a more accurate way, useful for this kind of thing There are generally innaccuracies at the start/ finish of segments and if they are short segments it can have a big impact. Sounds like good sprinting anyway Will
