2024 Event has SOLD OUT!

Sorry there are no waitlists.  If any tickets become available we will post this on our socials.

Jumps Clinics times and tickets on sale 27 March.

Normal shuttles are operating Friday 10 May – click here to buy tickets

It’s on again. The dopest time on your bike is back for more hits: Pineapple Express

Take a hit of the awesome trails at Mystic Bike Park and win piles of $50 notes – the pineapples.

Ride lap after lap with uplift shuttles for two days – the express.

In typical Blue Dirt style you do not have to be the fastest to win the pineapples.

Due to important earthworks in the top section of the park all shuttles will be dropping riders at Hero Trailhead.  World Cup & Elevation will be accessed from Hero Trailhead (note: top sections of World Cup & Elevation will be closed above Hero Trailhead).

Juicy Information:


Now breath out and feel the vibe. Just ride baby and let fate takes its hold upon your biking destiny.

Oh the juicy bit: How much for a 25% pot? Prize money is spread equally across the field. So you can come 400th and take home just as many pineapples as the best rider in the field.  Last year someone came 198th and won $1,800 cash plus a season pass at $990.

And don’t forget the Whip Off. Our quirky judges will pick the winner – same prize money as the timed segments. Shazam!  Some young punk took home $1,800 cash and a season pass too.

E- BIKES: Yes you are more than welcome however to keep things fair, e-bike riders will not be eligible for the 1st place position only. It is fair game for all other positions.

Lets give some back now:

It’s always good to reinvest in your crop. So $15 from each rider entry will be given to Alpine Community Plantations (ACP) to reinvest directly back into the trails at Mystic. More Big Bang maths for you: 800 riders = $12,000 to the trails.  Lock and load baby – stick that in your pipe and ride it.

Pineapple Express is a very social, organic thing:

There will be an event village with:

  • a Bright Brewery Bar
  • amazing bike industry folk dealing out the very best
  • fire pits
  • pumping tunes
  • food outlets
  • bike brands and companies
  • bike mechanic
  • Jumps skills sessions both days plus Friday – Note: You must have an event ticket to do skills sessions, purchased separately.


What is Pineapple Express?

It’s simple: within the Mystic Bike Park we will have some timed segments, not many. Ride them as many or as little times as you like over the Pineapple Express weekend. Your fastest time on each segment will combine to provide your total “Pineapple Express Time”.

Now here’s the smoke on the water: you don’t have to be fastest to win.

There are no categories – everyone is equal. Inhale and see if you get this:

Prizes go to each person who finishes on a 25th percentile. Or for those who don’t watch Big Bang Theory – we will divide the field into four sections.

For example if we have 600 riders, prizes are split for the people whose times sit at the following spots: 1st (because there always has to be a pick of the crop); 150th, 300th, 450th and so on.

Timed segments are held on a mixture of Blue / Black / Double Black gravity trails. There will be a blue alternate route for each black / double black segment.  We show you multiple routes to get to each section including easier routes and the tech route.

How much money can you win?

Well now here’s where we may need a bucket.

Blue Dirt will provide $1,000 across the five categories.

PLUS: We will then add 10% of all sponsorship revenue raised.

PLUS: And then we will allocate 10% of all entries to the prize pool. The more who enter the larger the prize pot.

PLUS: We will throw a Blue Dirt Season Pass on top valued at $990 each.

Get even more dope – this means bring your friends, grow the pot and increase the bang of the pineapple express.

Last years winners took away over $5,000 in cash and prizes each.

But wait there’s more…

There will be spot prizes for:

  • best fancy dressed rider
  • The ultimate bike bling
  • best party shirt on Saturday night
  • The best pineapple tattoo will get $200 cash (yes someone won this last year)
  • funniest photo hashtag
