Also a sneak preview of the latest geometry trend. Now that head tubes have slackened out, the top tube is getting the low and slack treatment.

Must Watch: Brandon Semenuk Rides Unique Slopestyle Features in ‘Realm’
@anchoricex: Along the same lines, I was kind of hoping this entire video was just going to be doing crazy tricks around that single log. Like, "oh, just hanging with my friends, trying things".

Amaury Pierron & Commencal 21 Team Manager Apologize for Instagram Stories
There actually are some very similar words in other languages that are (or were until VERY recently) the most appropriate way to address this demographic, making it easy to slip up. Don't discount the (cultural) language barrier here, even if someone seems to speak English very well. I do believe this was not meant in an offensive way, even if it may be presented as such. I think it is good that he followed up and apologized, learned a lesson along the way, and probably taught many others who may not know the offensive nature - although frankly in that regard the message is perhaps a little too vague. Don't forget that these words are still very common in music and movies, and don't always present the negative connotations. To be clear: I'm not trying to make excuses on behalf of the people involved, just explain that it can be difficult to learn this - and many other nuances - of different languages and cultures. Sharing this widely is probably the best way to help educate others; I do expect better from public figures on this level!
