Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Actual Enrollment : 18 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Triple (Participant, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Official Title: The Effect of Ribose on Performance and Recovery in Athletes
Study Start Date : August 2012
Primary Completion Date : January 2013
Study Completion Date : January 2013

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Ribose
After each of the 3km time trial (3 in total), consumption of ribose incorporated in a sports drink.
Other: Ribose
After each of the 3km time trial (3 in total), participants will be asked to drink the experimental product (or placebo) incorporated in a sports drink.
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
After each of the 3km time trial (3 in total), consumption of placebo incorporated in a sports drink.
Other: Placebo



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in time to complete the third of 3 consecutive 3km time trials on bike [ Time Frame: baseline and 1 week ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Performance on the 3 consecutive 3km time trials on bike [ Time Frame: baseline and 1 week ]
    Performance measures: peak power (watts/kg), mean power (watts/kg), time to peak power (sec), total work (kJ) and maximum cadence (RPMmax)


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Fatigue perception after each of the 3 consecutive 3km time trials on bike [ Time Frame: baseline and 1 week ]
    Post-exercise fatigue perception on visual analog scale (VAS)

  2. Peak Vo2 consumption during each of the 3km time trials on bike [ Time Frame: baseline and 1 week ]
