By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Belizean cyclist Joslyn Chavarria Jr competed as part of United States’ Team Rio Grande from Colorado in the five-stage Tour for a Just Peace (Tour por la Paz Justa) in Guatemala.

“After a very awesome and grueling week of racing in elevation and altitude in Guatemala,”Chavarria wrote in a social media post on Tuesday.

“Against many countries like El Salvador, Colombia, Guatemala, Honduras, etc for the Tour por la Paz Justa, learned a lot, met some awesome American friends, cyclists that have great sportsmanship and not to forget my team manager for this event Gustavo Carrillo who gave me the opportunity as a guest rider to be a part of this amazing experience riding at a much higher level.”

Chavarria placed 60th, 42nd, 65th, 41st, and 55th. He finished 49th in the general classification.
