Community Standards (Climbs, Cobbles, White Roads)

Community Standards
All the track objects should be saved using tour de France style.

Climbs
  • The name of the track must be the name of the climb, the same applies for the locality of finish: the two must be the same. It is the name of the starting point that distinguishes between different sides of the same climb
  • If a climbs has two different roads going uphill starting from the same locality which are significatly different, mark the distinction between round brackets. As an example the blablablapass has two roads starting from xxx. the first one is on the ss23 while the second is on the yyy Street. Name them as follows: blablabla pass (ss23) and blablabla pass yyy street). This kind of content has to be between brackets, and this will be the only occasion you are allowed to use them
  • It is pointless to say that you HAVE to track all sides of a climb. They have to be true sides. a climb starting from a town with two roads differing just for the first hundred meters does not qualify that as a new side of the same climb. Track the most direct road as the side of that climb.
  • Avoid to add different sides of a climb just because it can start from different points, such as a different road connecting while the original climb is already on its way "uphill".
  • Set the climb as public. We are the only users who are going to see that and it helps because we will not be forced to make them public alltogether in the end
  • Use the TDF style adding eventual POIs as generic sprints
  • Do not add any description
  • Set the category suggested by the editor (the only eccption are climbs such as 2km at 15%, which are usually 1st cat, feel free to set them to 2nd cat)
  • A crucial fact: add gravel climbs as if you will have to pay 500euros for each and every of them that you add. The only gravel climbs you can add are those already climbed from UCI races, or that are going to appear in few months. Also gravel climbs seen in amateur races might be accepted. It is an archive for Race bikes. Small exceptions are New Zealand and Iceland or places like that where also main roads happen to be gravel roads
  • Insert also climbs that ony have one side, and which are not suitable for a finish of a stage. The archive will be useful not just for trackers but also for people deciding where to ride their race bike.
  • Always check on the map to be sure that you have no doubles of the same climb or missing something. If a climb crosses another region where a different user is working, then just get in touch with him/her and decide who is going to take care of it
Strade Bianche
All submitted sectors must be practicable in a real bike race.
Field compilation:
  • Name: name of the sector. If not defined, use city name or depart > arrive if it's between two cities.
  • Nation: the nation that has the major portion of the sector
  • Depart: city or street where the sector starts
  • Arrive: city or street where the sector arrive
  • Type: flat if it's a sector, hill if it's a wall
  • Privacy: Public. Otherwise it does not appear on the map
  • Difficulty: Use those guidelines
    • +: Short sector, with easy cobbles, probably not real cobbles
    • ++: Short/Medium sector with normal cobbles or long sector with easy cobbles
    • +++: Long sector with normal cobbles or Short (at least 1 km) sector with hard cobbles
    • ++++: Medium/Long sector, with hard cobbles
    • +++++: Long sector, with hard cobbles
If you submit a variation of an existing sector, please submit it with the same name and the same direction of the existing sector (if they have the same name, they must have in common one extreme and this point should be the depart or the arrive in both cases)

White Roads

Two things

1) I will refuse everything without a country
2) Please insert only real cobbles, not city centers with sampietrini.

IMPORTANT COMMUNICATION

We, as staff, are tired to have plenty of useless climb to be approved. In particular

- Climbs that are already inserted (seriously, what is the point to insert the Stelvio? Do you really think nobody has drawn it before you?)
- Climbs with no start and arrive names
- Climbs with wrong start / finish points

For this reason, we are thinking about a suspension from climb insertions all the people who have plenty of refused climbs (about 20) until they reach the right quota.

Remember to check if your climb is already in the map before drawing it again.
