Notes for this study:
Supplementation of either 60g whey protein, 60g colostrum, or a combination of 20g colostrum with 40g whey, in elite cyclists over the course of eight weeks noted that performance on a weighted cycling test (similar to Wingate) failed to have any difference between groups (despite all groups improving by about 4% relative to baseline) although in a 2 hour endurance test there was an improvement of 132s and 158s in the colostrum groups (difference not significant) which were both greater than the whey only group at 37s.
