This study was designed to investigate the in-

fluence of endurance training on the activities of the scavenger enzymes superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT) and glutathion peroxidase (GSH-Px) measured in

erythrocytes from sedentary subjects, amateur bicycle racers and in professional bicycle racers who were cycling

in two real cyclist contests including the top-class race Vuelta a España (YCE). Under resting conditions the SOD activity was higher (p
