I have to give major kudos to our design and engineering team for creating these route maps for the 2011 Amgen Tour of California. They are clean, concise, and they give you all the detailed info you could ask for – How big is this/that climb? How much vertical does it rise (not just the elevation of the summit)? And what is the average grade? And you don’t have to be a Strava member to appreciate this functionality. Check out the big climbs which finish off the Queen Stage this year!
This is also a great segue into a big Strava announcement: We are now partnered with AEG! AEG (which stands for Anschutz Entertainment Group) is one of the leading sports and entertainment presenters in the world, and they have ownership of two major cycling events: the Amgen Tour of California (with the subsequent l’Etape du California open event), and the Leadville MTB 100! For both events, we will be providing this interactive mapping functionality – It is a great way to help fans and participants of these races, while still giving people a clear idea of Strava’s KOM functionality. Here’s a shot the final climb details:
Again, thanks to our designers and engineers. And also to AEG! You guys rock!
