eliminate drinks containing sodium ascorbate ?

Hi all,

considering the approach that Vit.C based antioxidants are actually not good for cycling performance,

Would you think that drinks containing sodium ascorbate / ascorbic acid (Vit. C) should be eliminated ?

Thanks!! Ride safely

Why would Vit C not be good?

Ah yes, the interwebs. I've tried it both ways with a 1g/day vitamin C supplement, didn't notice a difference. I think the effect, one way or the other, is too small to notice in a well-trained cyclist.
