Backroad Barbie #20
Why did you pick your derby name and number?
When I started derby, I had extremely long blonde hair, and I called it my Barbie hair. And the Backroad comes from loving to drive around in the country and have a good time. So... Backroad Barbie!!
And #20 was for 2.0 because I took a few years off and came back as a new version

What do you like about roller derby?
I really like to hit people. And I love having fun with my teammates!
What is your most impressive derby injury?
Sprained shoulder and wrist at the same time or a torn meniscus. Not sure which was more impressive. Ha!
Do you have any advice for people thinking about trying derby?
Try it! Give it a good shot. If it's not for you, at least you can say you did it, and you'll get to meet some awesome people!!
