Throw it back to when it happened. 11/10/2015. A day after the accident.

A post shared by Bill Kasandas (@kasandas) on

I was a rookie! It was my first time on a major race. I just wanted to win. My weakness was starting.

He went too fast on a corner in the race leading to the loss of his leg. He was conscious the whole time when paramedics told him he had lost his foot. After getting rushed to the hospital to attempt and reattach his foot, the doctors realized there were no clear lines to do that

He was planning a secret birthday plan for his girlfriend the next week and that’s all he was disappointed about, before the reality of losing his leg hit him.

He confessed he got depressed and traumatized.

I ride faster than I used to.

People call him MadMax and it makes sense now because, after recovery, he went back to riding

Betty also confessed she used to be an adrenaline junky.

He gets on his BMW Bike and they ride off to Kiganjo where the accident that changed his whole perspective on life happened.

‘The corner doesn’t bring back bad memories.’ He admits he took his time to forgive himself, his bike and everything.

He laughed when Betty asked if he intends to ever race again because Mad Max has been racing and even landed the second position in the championships last year.
