2500 meter elevation gain in Latvia? I thought there are no big mountains there.

Obviously the GPS data is wrong. But its easily possible to get that kind of elevation gain on a long drive, even if your terrain is relatively flat, like Baltic states.

It also depends on how granular the elevation gain accounting is. If you count every tiny little undulation, you will get fantastic elevation gain seemingly out of nowhere.

This is not the case with fastestlaps.com, I have compared by method and it is roughly comparable with Strava (super popular cycling, running app).

Its just that this particular recording is garbage.
