By Ruben Morales Iglesias: Cyclist Derrick Ryan Chavarria, known as ‘Baby Chav’, or the ‘Phenom’, in cycling circles is asking for help to help fund his studies at Lees McRae College in the United States.

Chavarria, 18, from the village of Georgeville in the Cayo District, is a member of the 501 Valvoline Cycling Club. Last year, he won the Caribbean Junior Cycling Championship in the Dominican Republic and excelled locally in Belize races, finishing on the podium several times for his club.

Chavarria said he was accepted “to attend Lees McRae College, with the help of CANO and Al Smith, for the fall semester,” and that he “qualified for a 9-year college scholarship. 000 USD / year, or ¼ of the total cost”.

According to Chavarria, Lees McRae College is a cycling college located in Banner Elk, North Carolina.

“My vision is to one day become a professional cyclist, racing with the pros around the world. It will also be a dream come true to represent my country well and give back where I can,” Chavarria said.

“My mission is to train to peak ability while studying and racing internationally in hopes of getting scouted and drafted by an international team and moving forward”

“Having said that, I ask the public for any financial aid that will help me attend this college. Your help will be greatly appreciated,” Chavarria said.
