Zwift Insider and 100 Climbs “Segment Hunter” Maps, Profiles and Stats

The “Segment Hunter” leaderboards have been a part of VeloViewer since 2014 and are probably best known for providing the various 100 Climbs leaderboards and more recently the Zwift Insider leaderboards. Although you could easily click the segment names to view the details of each segment, providing an overview map of all of the segments in each leaderboard was always an obvious omission. So now we have a new “Details/Map” tab to plug that gap.

One of the key things I wanted to be able to clearly see was way the often complicated Zwift Insider routes traversed the Zwift worlds. If you click on one of the segments in the list and you will see a marker show the direction of the route on the map and the corresponding position on the profile. Moving your mouse or finger over the 2D profile when selected will let you take control of the position of the marker.  Click the selected segment again to revert the map to zoom out and show all of the segments.

You can also use the “Align scale” option above the list to align both the distance and elevation scales of all of the segments’ 2D profiles in the list to get a better idea of how they compare:

PRO (and PRO+) users get to see the full list of segments for the leaderboard whereas free users will just get to see the first three segments.  Upgrade to PRO to see them all and to unlock a wealth of information about your Strava history in VeloViewer.

  • Thanks for the leaderboards and KOM lists! Would it be possible to add Bologna TT there, and so that the race format segment (not official) would be decisive – that happens to be one that people mostly ride.

  • Great update! The align scale and automatic preview features are awesome.
    I have a suggestion not related to the leaderboards: It would be nice if we could set ‘energy’ as a value for the graphs on the summary page, there is only ‘calories’ at the moment. Also the size of the calories is false, it should be Mcal instead of kcal.
    Thank you for adding all these updated to VV 🙂

    • I’m trying to see where I use “kcal”. As far as I can tell I’ve not used any units anywhere for calories. Glad you like the segment preview feature. I’m quite pleased with it myself as well!

  • Is there a way to “flag” a clearly bogus segment? For example, Yorkshire Royal Pump Room 8 leaderboard shows someone logging 9 minute time where the rest of humanity starts around 39 minutes. The Strava activity that originated that score had been flagged and deleted, but the VeloViewer board is none the wiser 🙂

    • Thanks for the head’s up. For some reason Strava has matched the segment to that user’s activity after just the first lap. He had properly ridden the whole course (in a much more manageable time) but the error is down to the segment matching at Strava’s end. I’ve asked him to try refreshing the activity achievements to see if that sorts it out.

    Hi Ben – Do you need to be a Strava subscriber for the Rebel Routes to appear on the Leaderboard? I rode the spiral into the volcano route this evening but nothing uploading?? Cheers

    • Nope, you don’t need to be a Strava subscriber or a VeloViewer PRO user to appear in the Zwift-Insider / 100 Climbs leaderboards. If you aren’t a Strava subscriber then you just see ticks for the segments you have completed rather than times. If it isn’t showing as completed after checking your times using the button at the top of the leaderboard then the most likely scenario is that you didn’t pass the start or finish of the segment. See if it is appearing on your Activity in Strava.

    The maps are great. Besides the individual rank on the route can you add the placing score? If I want to improve my worst rides I’ll start with the lowest (I think).
