Your choice could be:

- boot old kernel (even 8.x), compile a new one without GEOM_RAID and 
install/boot it
- take the LiveCD, boot it, copy a kernel from the network without a 
GEOM_RAID instead your kernel
- use usb stick with an installed FreeBSD (it must be using 
GEOM_RAID-free kernel) in order to do the same thing

I did the thing with usb stick.
There's also a way to clear the GEOM_RAID metadata from your disks, but 
I didn't manage how to do this (asked a couple of questions here though) 
so I won't be giving any advice about it.
