Does my belt needs replacement?

Hi,

I have a DKN Roadrun from 2012.

At periods it has been used 3x times per week, but in the last year it has not been used at all.
It always worked perfectly and I wanted to start using it again, however I ran into some problems.

I was hoping on your support to identify if the belt has worn out or not.
I've read multiple articles on the topic already but cannot make a conclusion myself.

The belt looks a little decolored on the edges, and on the inside of the belt it has like little "hairs",
however, I'm not sure if these signals are sufficient. Could you please take a look at the attached pictures ?

The reason I ask is because when I walk/run on it has intermittent stops,
whenever the belt gets stuck between my foot and the board.
Normally this is a sign for lubrication, however, I have used so much silicon already that I start the doubt if any amount would be sufficient ?

Also the tension of the belt is very tight, maybe even to tight, but losen it would only make this problem worse.

Can anyone provide some guidance?

Thank you in advance.

Best Regards,
Kristof
