So no one can try for both at once.

    I am a little confused by the chart, though. Elizabeth T is still on it. However, she was on my team, and had to drop out early. Thus, she's not on the leaderboard. I'm not sure why she would still be on this chart?
    Is it possible that this leaderboard is pulling based on who joined the BAFS Strava group (335 members) and authenticated the website (something smaller), whereas the other leaderboards are tied to the individual team Strava groups?

    Exactly! I created this specifically to "incentivize" those who aren't able to ride as much.

    jrenaut created the leaderboard, so maybe he can answer the question. I'm assuming you're talking about the leaderboard on the Freezing Saddles website.

    Yeah, this leaderboard doesn't care if you're on a team. I can maybe fix it sometime but probably not in time for the end of the competition.
