A lot of slang comes from bmx or winter sports. Like freeriding. Almost a direct steel from skiing. :)

without a doubt, my favorite is "bolt-on", the MTBer slang for breast implants...think about it...you bolt on new deraillers to make your bike better, women bolt-on new boobs to make thier boobs better

'rhoid buffing v. going down a hill so steep that your butt touches the rear wheel.
Ooooohhhh Feel the burn!

I heard one the other day that amused me:
Going Postal: v. when one's seat or seat clamp breaks leaving only the seatpost exposed!

Here's two of my favorites (in honor of our beloved friend:rolleyes: - see "the Enemy" thread):
auger v. to involuntarily take samples of the local geology, usually with one's face, during a crash.
bring home a Christmas tree v. to ride (or crash) through dense bushes, so leaves and branches are hanging from your bike and helmet.
