Cycling is a popular recreational and competitive sport with many physical and cardiovascular benefits. While many turn to cycling for its rehabilitative potential in comparison to impact sports such as running, the rate of injury in cycling is still rather high [1] and especially so in mountain biking (MTB) [2-6]. While traumatic injuries often receive the most attention, instances of overuse injuries are of particular concern in mountain biking as symptoms can often go unnoticed [2,3,5].
