ID Triathlon Team Florida – We need your help!

My name is Hector Torres. I am the Head Coach with Tri Peak Athlete and the Central Florida Tri Club. Since 2018, I have been working with Intellectual Disable Athletes on developing them into the Triathlon sport within Florida. Since we have began, it has grown tremendously! The program started with four athletes and now we have 16 athletes. Our goal is to have at least 40 athletes on the starting line on the USA Games in 2022 held here in Orlando, FL. From these games, we will select the team that will represent us at the 2023 games in Berlin, Germany!

Chris Nikic, was one of the first group.  One of his greatest accomplishments was completing Ironman Florida.  #anythingispossible

With small steps we are changing the world and allowing the athletes with Intellectual Disabilities to be included in every sport! #inclusion 

We know that the triathlon sport is very expensive; therefore, I need your help! I am collecting wetsuits, bikes, bike trainers and sneakers for these athletes. If you will like to donate and help this cause, I will greatly appreciate it! 

You can donate them at:

Tri Peak Athelte

617 Virginia Dr.
Orlando, FL 32803

Help me, help these athletes make a difference! 

If you will like to donate wetsuits, bikes, or bike trainers. Please reach out to me.

  • Communicate: use verbal and hand signals to communicate with other team members and with other traffic.
  • Hand signals: use the hand signals for turning and stopping.
  • Verbal warning: along with hand signals, verbally warn warn cyclist being you for anything that the person in front calls out.

  • Wait at turns and stops signs! No rolling through!
  • WATCH OUT FOR TRAFFIC! Ride for the person behind you, in front of you and yourself! SAFETY!
