Strava Leaderboard Weather

Curious as to the weather conditions faced by those at the top of a Strava Segment leaderboard? Our historic weather data gives you the power to See the Wind for the fastest on a Strava segment.

Compare the conditions for a segment. Who's at the top against the odds?!

Know thy enemy. See the wind.

Our colourful WindLines show you exactly how the wind will affect your route. Knowing when and how the wind will effect your ride can help you to prepare and execute your race in the most efficient way.

Be safe in the wind

Running the deepest front wheel possible will get you the best time, right. On a wind free day yes. Now consider a day in which the winds are high. You may be nervous to put that 80mm aero wheel in so you leave it at home. But hold on, what if the course never presents the wind at an angle that would cause you trouble? By viewing the wind for the course you may have the confidence to run the deep section wheel knowing that the crosswind will be manageable for the course.

What if the course is too dangerous for the 80mm wheel. Find out beforehand by checking where on the course the crosswind will be and just how high the crosswind speed is.

Predicting and analysing performance

We can't control the conditions but we can control our expectations. If the wind is unfavourable for the course you may want to adjust your targets for that race. Knowing in advanced how the wind will likely effect your target time is a good way to keep morale up. Especially when staring at your average speed half way through the race.

After a race knowing the conditions you raced in you can view how well you did with statistics such as Effective Air Speed. This shows the overall average of the air speed for the course. The wind direction, course orientation, your average speed and wind speed all effect the air speed encountered during your race. Use this information to compare your performance with other races.
