    And when you ride with the guys and they smoke you on the climb, they'll go "Dude, how did you get that KOM?"

    I think there was always a way to do this with software, but that would cost$$. I can't remember what it's called. It's also not easy either.

    This website just made it easy.

    It’s just an XML file. If you seriously have run out of things to do, then by all means, have fun tampering with the file in a text editor and then upload to Strava. We’ll just flag it anyway and you’ll be the douchebag.

    Finally..an explanation for my dearth of KOM's. I knew it had to be rigged!!! I just can't believe how many people are already doing this. I know there are a few people climbing faster than me, but several hundred? "I am shocked, shocked to find that digitalEPO is going on here!"

    For those who dont have the riding skill or fitness to actually get a KOM. Its sad, the world is full of cheaters and those trying to get something without doing anything.

    Hilarious.

    It was only a question of time before "virtual" doping came to "virtual" racing.

    The fact that people even care about KOM enough to "tag it" strikes me as ironic.

    Sure it does, if its a timed segment through a super technical section, skill has a lot to do with it.

    Now I can regain the KOM's that I've lost. Certainly easier than wearing these patches on my nuts...

    I finally got the KOM back that started in my garage, looped around my backyard and ended in the middle of our court. (Take that wife for stealing my KOM!!!)

    The US Postal service called EPO "edgar", referring to Edgar Allan Poe.

    Who cares? Strava isn't accurate anyway.

    Throw in a north facing slope and some trees and you have +/- 5 minutes on a 3 minute segment. Hilarious!

    I am sure the anti Strava people love this but here is the problems in your evil plot.

    If somebody beats the current KOM/QOM by too much time it will look suspicious and get flagged.

    The people who don't want their false times flagged will only beat the current leaders by a second or two causing the the real current leader to ride like d0uche to get his title back.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    Look at the segments for Endor. 1:30 hahaha! 2X faster than the fastest rider I know. A super human? Nope. North facing and trees. This isn't uncommon. I can think of a dozen popular segments that fall under this category right off the top of my head.

    Seeing that the Endor KOM was not flagged proves that users only want to be fastest, inaccurate data be damned.

    That's the beauty of it, you get to screw with them again and again. Once they take your EPO'd KOM, you nudge up your speed just enough to beat him by 10 seconds.

    Lather, Rinse, Repeat.
