Default Fail to create enclosure and Unite

Jinjolee is on a distinguished road
I have a assembly file in SolidWorks (2018version) which is a model of a cyclist riding a bike. I need to perform external flow simulation on it, so I import it in DesignModeler in ANSYS 16.1(My school only possesses this license). The import seems to be fine. However, when I added an enclosure to it, error and warning came out as follow:

Error: Boolean operation failed
Context: Geometry Engine, while generation Feature Enclosure1

Warning: At least one of the imported/attached/converted bodies could not be validated. It is possible that subsequent modeling operation will fail.
Addition information: The following could not be validated: Cyclist-1@body-1
Context: Feature Enclosure1

May I know what would be a possible fix to this?

FYI: I will uploaded the SolidWorks assembly along with part files, and the agdb file in case you could not open SolidWorks. I failed to put them in the attachment, so I would put down the link of them via dropbox.
