Just to warn :) You start something very addictive, it is like a video game but in real !
But there are KOM's and KOM's, if you are the first over 10 good, first over 100 that become serious, 1 over 1000... wow :D

Both of my kom's are only top out of 20 riders with 35/45 attempts so not widely ridden but local to me, I have a few top tens with one I'm 7 out of 2,080 Attempts By 688 people with is a road bikes predominantly sprint and only 2 seconds off 2nd place!....... which shows how quick the 062 can be..... Strava can be very addictive and also makes you plan rides around wind direction which can spoil the fun of just getting out and riding......

Not to mention the risk you take sometimes just to win( and the risk you offer to people who may innocently cross your path ).
I've read once the word "Stravard", it is a good name for some of us :)

Well, I'll have to dig up the Strava screen shot of this run, but I did get KOM for 2017 at Climbworks and 2nd overall for the down hill section which is what's shown in the video.  It had been raining and everything was wet, so I was being extra careful on the wooden vortex, however as I came out of it and through the next section, Strava clocked me at 31.8 mph.  You can tell where in the video because the trees are going by REALLY fast for a few seconds. 

The loop is short, just under 2 miles, but it was fun... Until I fell on the wood and broke my shifter.  My bike was out of commission for the rest of the trip. :-( No local shops had a GX or X1 11 speed shifter.

Great video! That trail looks fast and fun. I love the wooden berms, they look like a blast!!!
