The Great Skate Question

FasterSkierJune 6, 2008

Justin Freeman posted a piece on his blog responding to Dick Taylor's recent FasterSkier article “The Fishy thing About Skating.” Justin disagrees with Dick's main assertions, and asks some questions. He encourages people to comment on his blog to discuss the matter.

Dick's article has received a number of interesting comments over the last week and he has written a response – also in the comment section of that article.
