VAM calc adjustments

VAM calc adjustments

I would like to be able to "filter" out typically starts and ends of climbs where the grade is smaller.
Eg. For a hill that is around 8% in average for the main hill part, it can become 1-2% if a "false" flat intro or ending is included. For such small grades the velocity is higher and the VAM is not that comparable from hill to hill.
VAM should, as far as i know, only make sense from 5-7% average grade hills (or parts of hils) due to the increasing air resistance at higher speeds (lower grades)

Please consider taking this into account in the VAM options in some way?
