Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand words… and from the way his teammates, friends, family, and anyone who came in contact with Chad describe him, this picture displays the vibrant and caring personality Chad was known for.
The cycling community will always remember Chad with a smile such as this… a positive energy taken too soon after his injuries sustained during a crash in a high-speed mountain descent in the Tour de Gila.
His family wanted to help address the growing concern around concussions in the pro peloton by helping fund developments leading to the prevention of traumatic brain injuries, while also offering a scholarship to like-minded young riders, so they started the Chad Young Foundation.
The CY shop has been reopened to provide the foundation additional assistance as all proceeds go directly to the Chad Young Foundation. The close date is set for this Sunday, so make sure to get your gear before the end of the weekend.
