Chad Young, a 21-year-old rider from New Hampshire, passed away from 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 so they started the Chad Young Foundation.
To do our part, we worked with them to create a cycling kit and a way for people to help the foundation. The proceeds from the kit sales went directly to the Foundation to help fund developments leading to the prevention of traumatic brain injuries in cycling, compassionate hospital care, and merit-based scholarships at two of the schools Chad attended.
The shop was open for just a couple weeks, and $7,000 was raised for the Chad Young Foundation.
We’re excited to announce that we have a few new Chad Young items and we’re re-opening the shop for a limited time starting Oct. 2nd so we can help this great foundation even more.
