Find out which pro rider you are using just your Strava data

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

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…
