 It would be awesome if next time, the algorithm on the live feed/tracker was in place during the entire contest and not just the last day after the contest closes. Planning my rides around how many vertical meters I was given credit for on the Monday ride set the tone for the week. I was a little disheartened to find that after I had pedalled my mountain bike 9600 vertical meters and ridden a unique set of trails each day that the algorithm to count how many vertical meters were climbed on marked trails was implemented after the contest had closed. Yes, I did climb up Stonebridge but that's the reality of riding the fun trails in Whistler. Congrats to the eventual winner, heard him say he didn't have a dropper post before this contest, a worthy recipient for sure!

 I love Trailforks. It's crazy to think of how it was before this app came along...although I did enjoy getting lost from time to time.

 Trailforks is becoming greater and greater. The number of trails on the map is growing like crazy.

 Real question: were the winners riding e-bikes?

 It is ebike week on pinkebike. Strava is now ruined by it in the UK and Europe for trail riding. You can't trust what you see anymore.
