We've been approached to help out with a study on cyclists. Details below.
My name is Michael Davies and I am a PhD student at the University Canberra and Australian Institute of Sport. You are receiving this email because I would like to extend an invitation to the cyclists whom you work with to participate in a hyperoxic time-trial study as part of my PhD research. Cyclists aged 16 years or older with at least a 12 month training history are invited to participate in the research project investigating the effect of hyperoxia (an oxygen enriched environment) on pacing and exercise regulation during 4,000m cycling time-trials.
Further information outlining the study and its involvement can be found in the attached Information Sheet for Participants document.
If you are happy for your members at Bilbys Triathlon Club to participate in this research, could you please forward this email or the attached study advertisement? Additionally, if you or the members have any other questions about the research project, please contact me at
