Stress fractures are among the regularly occurring overuse injuries in athletes. They can occur as a result of an imbalance of repetitive loading and structural weakness. We report the case of a professional cyclist who trained exclusively for his sport in a highly specific manner from early adolescence and sustained a bilateral tibial stress fracture in the context of a new load of intense running and marching during Army basic training.
