The world loses Chadd Bain
Yesterday Chadd Bain passed away after a motorcycle accident…
We send our condolences to Kate, Sandile and the rest of Chadd’s family. Chadd was one of those amazing people who was so giving of himself and spent his time helping out others. I first met him while I was walking to the start at a regional at Cascades. I got hooked on DH and at my first race Chadd and Kate let me pit with them and their kids. They made me feel like part of their family right away. My first practice run I was pretty nervous so Chadd offered to go down with me to feel out the track. When I got to the bottom I could not see him anywhere. Turns out I passed him at the halfway mark because he had gone off the track and was in the bushes. We had a laugh about it when he finally appeared.
I will miss Chadd and I will miss racing against him.
Instead of sending flowers or cards, as a suggestion why not donate that money rather to the Izulu Orphan Project which Chadd ran. The project was aimed at helping aids orphans and the less fortunate. Details can be found here. Flowers wither and cards get lost, but that R20 could make all the difference to an orphan.
