"Roller Derby embodies many things: athleticism, beauty, magic, obsession, passion, power, and that something special you just can't put into words, but know it the second you step out onto the track to face your opponents and ultimately yourself. Dave Wood's photography captures it all. It is roller derby at that indescribable moment."
