Elite cyclists: Free VO2max/Peak power test and a chance to earn R3000 for doing timetrials

SHOOT: Since I've left Bellville, I'm sharing this with you lot.  Contact details below.
Hi there
I got hold of your contact details from Sunita Potgieter at Tygerberg.
At the moment we are running a lab based cycle challenge which offers elite cyclists the opportunity to get their VO2max/Peak power output tested for free.
Depending on your results you may also qualify to participate in an upcoming research trial starting early August should you be interested.
We'll be testing the effect of an antioxidant supplement on time trial performance. In total the trial lasts for 12 weeks. During this time volunteers will be on a supplement and then need to come in for a number of scheduled visits to our lab to complete a 30km time trial in each instance (e.g once every 2nd week or so). Also there will be blood samples that need to be taken at certain time points.  The rest of the time one can continue training as per normal except that ones’ diet and training is recorded in the days before each time trial.
Participants in the trial each receive R3000 as compensation for their time. Also, detailed feedback on their performance and diet etc.
Please advise if you’re at all interested so that we can schedule a time slot in the lab challenge which suits your schedule anytime next week. Thank you.
Kind Regards
