Patellofemoral pain (PFP) is a common cycling-related injury, and independent factors need to be identified to enable effective injury prevention strategies. We aim to determine factors associated with PFP in cyclists entering mass community-based events. 62758 consenting race entrants completed a pre-race medical questionnaire, and 323 reported PFP. Selected factors associated with PFP (demographics, cycling experience and training, chronic disease history) were explored using multivariate analyses.
