That doesn't look like the profile I rode. Isn't plotting altitude by time guaranteed to flatten or steepen the profile unless your speed is constant? Plotting altitude by distance is the only meaningful way to do it.

Great ride, though.
My beef with the S710chazman

Yes, the profile is kind of meanigless except that it at least allows those who rode the race get an idea of the ups and downs. The one thing that I don't like about the S710 is that it does not allow you to plot altitude vs. distance. As a matter of fact, I looked at the datafiles and it does not even record distance. I think I will write a program to extrapolate distance from speed and time and make my own plots using excel.

The new version of the polar software lets you jump back and forth between time and distance for the X-Axis of the graph.

It is available on the Polar wedsite and works with all current monitors.
