Strava News: the Zwift Segment Shakeup Saga Continues

Strava News: the Zwift Segment Shakeup Saga Continues

First, a Bit of Backstory

Back in April 2020, Strava announced they would be making major changes to Zwift Strava segments, to “remove clutter and noise so athletes can experience the segments that matter the most.”

At that time, Strava swapped quite a few user-created segments to “private” so only the user who created the segment could see it. They appeared to backpedal a bit after the initial “culling,” with a lot of user-created segments still being visible in the weeks following their announcement.

Since that date, to the best of my knowledge, all segments created by Strava accounts other than Zwift Insider have been marked as private segments – Zwifters have no option to make a segment public. (This is why we’ve only seen Zwift Insider segments on the France and Paris maps – they were released after Strava made this change.)

Today: All Non-Zwift Insider Segments Hidden

I woke up this morning to several emails from Zwifters wondering what was going on with Strava segments. One rider said, “I rode for an hour in Watopia, and Strava only popped up with three segments. They were all Zwift Insider verified, and they were all hidden!”

It appears Strava flipped a switch overnight, marking all Zwift segments as private unless they were created by our Zwift Insider account.

To give you an idea how dramatic this change is, here are snapshots of the segment list from a particular activity – first in April 2018 (before Strava’s initial culling), the second from today after Strava’s final culling:

For some Zwifters, this will be a welcome change. But I also understand why others would be bugged by it, especially if you’ve been tracking progress on particular (non-ZI) segments.

(And for all the Zwift veterans, the legendary “first attempt. very intens” segment appears to be hidden once again, visible only to that long-time Zwifter who created it many years ago.)

No More (Zwift Insider verified)

Renaming in progress!

As I was composing this post, I refreshed a ride just in time to catch Strava in the act of renaming all the Zwift Insider verified segments, removing the “(Zwift Insider verified)” portion of the segment name.

Got an email from Zwift’s Wes Salmon just minutes later:

Hey Eric,

Quick note about some changes Strava is making for Zwift segments … since all the official segments you’ve created are now sanctioned by Strava, they are removing the (Zwift Insider Verified) since all Zwift segments are now default verified (by you). 🙂

The URLs should not change, just the titles.

An understandable change, although it a bit of a bummer for me, since having the segments tagged with Zwift Insider was a good way to remind folks to visit this website. The segment list will certainly look cleaner now…

Got Segment Suggestions?

With only Zwift Insider segments showing up, the segment list in Strava is indeed quite short for some rides. I don’t plan to re-clutter it, but I do think there is room for some additional segments across key portions of Zwift’s maps.

To that end, I’m working on creating a set of segments for the Epic KOM as I type this. This will include (for example) segments from the start of the forward and reverse climbs to the top of the Radio Tower. Not official in-game segments, but useful and interesting nonetheless. Here’s what I created so far today:

I will add these segments to this page which lists all Zwift Insider-verified Strava segments.

If you have suggestions for segments beyond the official ones we’ve already created, please post them in the comments below. If your segment idea seems like a sensible one, I’ll do my best to get it created!

It would be nice to have the (currently too short) sprint segments added. Only having a single segment per direction in Paris is a bit sad …
The link to the strava support forum(?) in your Strava segment list (Insbruck, NYC, Yorkshire) doesn’t work any more.

This is a good idea. If Eric Friggen Schlange has the clout for the only segments but not for short segments then I second the vote for Alpe segments that cover eg 21-20, 21-19. Then I can do the math.

I recommend 15-17, 17-19 & 19-21.
Since 16-17, 18-19 & 19-20 are too short and thus missing, those three segments above would cover your data needs with one subtraction each.

Ie.
For 16-17, take 15-17 and subtract 15-16.
For 18-19, take 17-19 and subtract 17-18.
For 19-20, take 19-21 and subtract 20-21.

I did this for myself with private segments, but I wasn’t able to make them public. I guess public Zwift/Strava segments cannot be created by individual Zwifters, right?

Some more on the French course would be nice:
1) Splitting up the Ventoux climb into say 4 smaller segments like you do for the bends on the Alpe, so it’s easier to see where you gained/lost time compared to previous attempts
2) The flattest part of the course from the Marina to Pave Sprint banners
3) The whole “Twisties” middle section from junction to junction

I agree that more segments are needed on Ventoux. Could do with the start line to the junction with Petit KOM, then from there to Chalet Reynard (or perhaps split this in two), and then Chalet to the top.

Yeah if it’s going to be four, there must be a logical place to split the part from the junction to the Chalet in two. There’s the hairpin, which is where the steeper bit of the climb kicks in, but that might be too early. The end of the tunnel might be a good bet?

Ahh, now I see – I think they did this yesterday – I did TdZ 5 Standard ride (NYC KOM After Party) at 6PM EST, and only got 4 results from 3 segments when I looked at about 8:00PM. I was surprised to see so so few, but since I rarely ride NYC, I shrugged and chalked it up to glass skyroads. Last night, the segments all said “Zwift Insider Verified”, but today, at least on Strava mobile, they just say “NYC KOM”, no mention of ZI.

Yes, they definitely need to be fixed but most aren’t caused by doping. they’re caused by a Zwift glitch in group rides. If you look at the actual rides, they’re usually just someone plodding along and suddenly they start flying at stupid speeds but they’re nearly always in a group ride. Happened to me on Saturday with Box Hill.

I would say all of the KOM’s with full Zwift segment distance and name them appropriately. For instance, the Volcano Climb KOM was called The Corkscrew. Yes, that’s what it was but until you figure out there isn’t another segment with the corresponding length it’s hard to know that’s the climb you just blew a gut trying to break 8 minutes on. There are several KOM’s that don’t show up in Zpoints and so it’s hard to know when you’ve bettered your PR. Aqueduc KOM on RGV comes to mind. Reverse Aqueduc on Douche does, though and it’s a good… Read more »

So why does the Watopia Short Course Figure 8 Reverse still indicate Zwift Insider Verified? I re-rode the course today in a free-ride from the drop in screen and no Strava Segment appears (with or without ZIW indicator). And ALL cyclists previously completing the course in the VeloViewer RouteHunter leaderboards went missing! Here’s the link to my activity. https://www.strava.com/activities/4714679198

The Veloviewer leaderboard is matching a wrong segment for Figure 8 Reverse. The segment it is pulling is named Figure 8 Reverse (Zwift Insider Verified) but it does not correspond to the route. It does not seem to be a Strava bug or error, seems like the correction needs to be done by ZI.

Hopefully, this will allow Strava to remove all the junk results/KoMs from the top of the lists. I know some people believe these to be from cheaters but many aren’t. Currently, I sit 6th on the Box Hill (Zwift Insider verified) segment with 3min 59sec while only doing 172W. It’s clearly complete rubbish, a Zwift glitch in group rides. I notice many of the top positions are held by people doing group rides, riding at low power.

That’s a shame as it undermines all the excellent work you do with these; create the right segments then the leaderboards get filled with junk results. I’m delighted with my “real” time of 7:19 up Box Hill but embarrassed about the 3:59 result because it’s fake. I presume it’s a Zwift problem but causing a headache for Strava?

I can’t mark the ride as private as it was part of a charity ride to do as many miles as we could over the weekend.

Still doesn’t fix the hundreds of similar others that exist though (I do wonder if some of the riders are even aware they’ve got a weird KOM). The leader boards are just littered with these sort of results though.

If you have an issue with an unrealistic PR of your own, you can always set the visibility of that particular Strava activity (but unfortunately not an individual segment) to “followers only” – this way, it won’t be considered for challenge and segment leaderboards (but might still count towards challenge goals, that depends on the settings for the particular challenge).

I don’t think most are cheaters. Zwift occasionally gives people in group rides some silly times.

You can go into most of the rides and see what it’s done.

A new climbing route option presented by the addition of the cliff side KOM by-pass is Epic KOM laps. The issue is the intersections at both ends are inside the current KOM Segment markers.

I did this ride a few weeks ago and noticed that the “Original” Epic KOM segment started after the by-pass intersection. I think it was a ZwiftInsider segment at one point but I’m not sure if it still was.

If not I’d love to see that shorter by-pass to Banner for both Epic KOMs added as a Strava segment.

This is actually a move I agree with. Zwift segments have gotten out of control. A simple lap around the volcano circuit, for example, probably yields 30 segments or more, little strips of virtual road with asinine names. The Zwift Insider segments are the only ones that matter anyway.

If you’ve only done them as single laps, you start the Two Bridges Route after the start banner so you never do the full segment unless you do multiple laps. That’s a Zwift thing where they should move the start back to behind the banner so you do a full lap.
