I saw an ad for a free trial of this on cycling.tv

I trust its reputable.

But will it help me, a high school road enthusiast get better performance and boost energy?
Anyone tried it?
Opinions?

Hi,
I did that. It's basically caffeine, antioxidants, and a few vitamins.
My problem is that when I come back, the last thing I want is caffeine. First thing in the morning I have a fruit shake and a multivitamin. No need for it then. I don't usually want anything just before I ride. So I tried it, but it justs sits in the frig. YMMV.

You can use that stuff before and during the rides. Probably wouldn't be any different than having a cup of coffee before the ride. After the ride, for recovery, you actually want something with the opposite effect.

by the time you pay the shipping it is cheaper to go down to GNC.

Not really. Shipping is $6 and you get a huge bottle.
I received mine today by ups.
I tried it and went out for a ride, can't say I feel a difference. Even though, I did start out really well and managed high speeds at ease. Before my hands froze off of course.
But that could just mean I was revitalized after a 2 day break and I was well hydrated.
