Skater of the Month: Outlaw Jessie Pains
Outlaw Jessie Pains was one to notice in her fresh meat pack last year, as she worked tirelessly to perfect her skills… on day two. She quickly hopped up the ranks from joining the team in January 2011 to bouting in June of the same year. This season she not only continues to push herself and her versatility on the track, but has taken on an added responsibility as a board member. You might recognize her as the poster girl from our last bout, or just remember the chaps…
