400ug of salbutamol (one single inhalation) will be inhaled 60min prior to the begin of a time trial. Mean power output during the following 10km time trial will be described to 1600ug salbutamol and placebo.
60 minutes prior to the start of a 10km cycling time trial on a bike ergometer, subjects will inhale either 400ug of salbutamol 1600ug of salbutamol or 400ug of placebo in a randomly assigned manner in a single dose.
Other Name: ventolin
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
400ug of placebo (one single inhalation) will be inhaled 60min prior to the begin of a time trial. Mean power output during the following 10km time trial will be described to 400ug and 1600ug salbutamol.
- The effect of inhaled salbutamol on mean power output during cycling performance in female and male athletes [ Time Frame: Mean power output is assessed over the duration of a 10km time trial (start of time trial until completion of time trial) on a bike ergometer. ]Athletes perform a two time trials, each on a separate day. The time trials are performed 60min after the inhalation of salbutamol or placebo.
- The effect of inhaled salbutamol on work of breathing (WOB) and expiratory flow limitation (EFL) in female and male athletes [ Time Frame: WOB and EFL will be assessed during an incremental exercise test. Exercise will start at 0 Watts and will then be increased every 2.5min by 30 Watts until maximal exertion. ]EFL and WOB will be assessed with the help of an esophageal balloon and mouth pressure.
- The effect of inhaled salbutamol on minute ventilation in asthmatic and non-asthmatic trained, female and male cyclists [ Time Frame: Minute ventilation will be assessed during two 10km time trials (one time trial will be started 60min after the inhalation of salbutamol, the second time trial will be started 60min after the inhalation of placebo). ]
