Helping a friend repair.

2014 RIDLEY X-Fire CX Bike Chainstay damaged putting wheel on & off.

Tips or links on how to repair properly? Use Carbon Matt kit? Simply fill in with epoxy?

Moving forward after repair any ideas on how to help prevent damage in future (besides "being careful"). My idea was to wrap small cassette rings with electric tape,,,thinking about it, it may get weird with chain going on small rings when installing rear wheel.

The chainstay is really wide (none of my other bikes are that wide, including my 2010 Ridley X-Fire) to the inside of where rear wheel mounts up - between trying to line up disc in caliper and getting wheel into dropout its pretty challenging. I couldn't see doing wheel replacement quickly in a CX race with out damaging frame again.
