Strava Toolbox says that I'm Mark Cavendish. Well who am I to argue?

Ever wondered with which pro rider you have most in common? Are you a sprinter like Cavendish, a puncheur like Gilbert, or a climber like Quintana? Well now you can find out using a neat online tool that will assign you to a pro rider based on your Strava stats.

>>> Seven amazing things you never knew Strava could do

Designed by Marcello Brivio, an amateur cyclist from Italy, the Strava Toolbox connects to your account, analyses the rides, and crunches the numbers, before throwing out a whole load of interesting stats that aren’t available on Strava itself.

So for example it will not only tell me that I have 22 KOMs, but that the average length of these segments is 3.46km with an average gradient of 2.13%. However the majority (72.73%) of my KOMs are on flat segments, with a large number being on “sprint segments” of 1000m or less. All that means that my KOM profile matches Mark Cavendish. Apparently.

Aside from that, the Strava Toolbox will give you reports on both your year-to-date and your all-time riding, which told be that I completed my first circumnavigation of the Earth only a couple of months ago, and that I have climbed nearly 100,000m more than Tim Peake did on his way to the International Space Station. Not bad, huh?

Finally it will also give you a list of people who you follow, but who don’t follow you back. Just so you know who doesn’t like you…

Head over the Strava Toolbox to give it a go.

    This is amazing. AMAZING! I’ve ridden 30% of the circumference of the earth and my riding style is like Rudi Altig’s. He won a Vuelta, a TdF Green jersey, The Milan-San Remo, a World Champs and multiple Six Day events. Yep, I’ll take that.

  • Hi, I’m sorry for that. This post on Cycling Weekly is generating huge traffic on Strava Toolbox (thank you, guys!) and sometimes this is causing troubles accessing Strava APIs. Please try again today and let me know if you still have that error.

  • A mí no me pagan por opinar

    Keeps telling me “not enough data”, as I’ve using Strava for three years 🙁
