    How do people have so many miles already? It's hard to compete! I thought I had a pretty good commute (17 miles roundtrip), but how do people already have over 300?

    I have a 30 mile roundtrip and am still far from the top. I find my ranking improves every Friday, after I log a week's worth of commutes. It then falls on weekends, when I sleaze ride and others get their 100-200 mile rides in.

    The challenge started on a Friday this year, so lots of weekend/nice weather riders got some big points (Plus you're in the running with amazing folks like Eric Williams and Rod Smith who ride more in a single day than I ride in a week!). In the past I find that steady commuters start climbing the leaderboards while weekend warriors lose time to weather, heat, vacations, family, etc.

    Just set a goal for yourself (i'm shooting for Diamond level this year!) and go for it!

    There are some folks on the local leaderboard that remain unaffiliated with a team. Please take a look. If you know any of the unaffiliated folks, please invite them to join the Washington Area All Stars.

    Slightly off topic, but is there any way to find my stats from last year's NBC if I didn't save them?

    The NBC has the 2014 stats on the leader board (I don't think there is a separate Challenge period selection though), just select that year and use the "find me" (middle of the page) function. I was #112 nationally (#1 in Arlington) with 12,382 points

    Sync didn't work for me (despite linking w/ Strava earlier). I tried triggering a manual re-sync, maybe it will eventually populate, but it still shows "0" for # of rides this challenge, etc. The new site looks nice, but still obviously is still a little glitchy. I'm definitely not caring enough to enter my rides manually, so if Strava sync doesn't work, I'll just unlink/remove my profile.

    It worked for me, but took somewhere in the 15 minute to 2 hour range for it to populate.
