Raul: We do train outdoors a lot of times, but we come here indoors sometimes to work on form and technique drills, and also it's a really,, really safe why to practice especially for bicycle. We can practice these skills before you go on the road.

Billy V: I notice I see cycling here but you mention triathlon so that means you do other things as well.   

Raul: On yeah definitely we train people for swimming, bikes, run as a triathlete and also as a separate sport as well for swimmers, bicyclists, runners as well.

Billy V: As I understand you got started with training first, but now you have a Boca store. What's that all about?

Raul: It was something that came up a few years ago when had a first need to open a shop. We noticed the people that we train need gear and they need to fix their bikes and so on and we decided to open a shop it's been great we're having a good time.

Billy V. Now you do races and events?

Raul: We do. To keep the athletes motivated. We must create races and events to keep people training and be happy about it and also have a goal. So it's very important to promote the sport.

Billy V: Something to work towards.
