Results: Among the 140 evaluated cyclists, there were 19 (13.5%) clavicle fractures associated with this sports modality. Conclusion: There was a positive association between time practicing bicycling and frequency of clavicle fractures, as well as between hours of weekly training and clavicle fractures.
