From desertkiwi: "I tend to over-supinate on the right foot and tend to recover with my foot pointing to the right. In trying to correct this, I found that to I had to rotate my knee way to the inside, which throws off the whole nose/knee/toe alignment equation."

Can you think of a good Roller Derby name for a referee named Chuck?
From Ingo: "Anyone have suggestions on drills that would improve starts. Particularly, drills that would help the timid skaters get through the pack before or just after the first turn."

From squiznat: "My skate wheels are hard and they often pick up crud from the rink floor. This stuff is really horrible - thick and black and tar-like. You can peel it off if you want to pick at it. How do you clean your skate wheels?"
From Dev Gnoll: Simple question. What is overtraining and what are the symptoms of overtraining?"
From Fablemaker2: "Can anyone tell me the best frames out there that I can use as a flat setup, but that allows for a bit of grinding? I like the flat setup, but I trip up a lot cuz my wheels catch."
Lots of great information about Italian artistic inline plate makers, from tguido56.
