Dirty5

Anyone involved with having wheels on their feet will have crossed paths with Dirty5 at some point – A skating aficionado single handedly keeping Virgin Airlines in business!


At the tender age of 10, Dirty kicked off his epic career with ice-skating – where he promptly decided falling over and getting wet wasn’t for him, and shifted across the road to roller skating.


Starting initially in Artistic skating (Until he was told he had to wear lycra!), Dirty has conquered and represented pretty much every arm of skating; National level speed skating and Roller Hockey then world level Inline Hockey.


More recently, Dirty was introduced to Derby within Tasmania by a friend who was just starting up – with skating well and truly in his skill set, it was the challenge of gameplay that drew him in; “I thought as I’m an old school skater, once I understand the game a bit I might be able to help…Understand the game?! Just when you think you got something, it changes!!”


Over the last three years, Dirty has donned Tassie Green and Victorian Blue for the Mens Roller Derby Nationals.

I have been involved in roller derby for 8 years. I have witnessed the sport develop from the g-string leotard, fishnet and safety pins days to the highly competitive and athletic sport it has become.


I now take my off skates strength and conditioning as seriously as my skating. Every sport requires different types of training, especially something as unique as roller derby. I decided to pursue a career in fitness to spread this knowledge throughout the derby community. I want to see every skater reach their potential and believe that understanding your training and your strengths is what will get you there.

Suzy Hotrod

Suzy Hotrod joined roller derby in 2004 with New York City's Gotham Girls Roller Derby after being an athletically dormant art school student who spent her free time playing in a punk band.

 

There were no tryouts and there was only 6 skaters on her team in her first bout. Her skating background consisted of attending birthday parties at the roller rink. She ran track and played basketball growing up and left sports after freshman year of high school because she preferred marching band.

Trippy

I've studied with some great teachers like Donna Farhi & Sarah Powers. In 2011, I started teaching in Beijing at a studio called Yoga Yard, the city's first. When I moved back to Australia in 2012, I did a Cert IV in yoga teaching at Byron Bay Yoga Centre.

 

I've taught at various gyms and studios around Melbourne, and currently just cover classes when other teachers need it. I practice at Australian Yoga Academy in Seddon


The style I teach is Vinyasa Flow

 

I started my derby career in 2012 and moved to the Victorian Roller Derby League (VRDL) in 2014.  Playing with the Queen Bees, yoga has helped me be stronger and focused when I'm jamming.
