This week we find out that Loic Bruni's favourite wine is Chateauneuf, Rupert Chapman joins us again, Dan ruins Red Dog's day, and Kieran comes clean about Minnaar.
In this episode we tackle 3x events, Rennie joins us LIVE, there are wild team rumours, crap drink suggestions, brutal crash stories, and we scroll Instagram for a while.
A special episode where we have a legitimate guest in the studio, one that's nearly relevant. Kieran is back, Dan brings a red from the bottle-o, Rupert Chapman talks drunk training and we go on for quite a long time.
Kieran sits one out, Dan matches wine and racing, James gets upset by baby boomers ruining search engines and Jay loses the ability to speak (again). Plus all the normal segments, the highlights, the lowlights, the timely banter.
This week we get attacked by vicious pugs. Jay knows nothing about Mountain Biking history. Dan Sims comes to the table with so many good answers and thoughtful commentary that we think he's in the wrong place. James hates Leogang, and KB's 2009 X-Fusion team video get's put under scrutiny.

This week Season 1 guest host Dan Sims makes a return, Kieran and Dan get confused about Tahnee's wins, Jay doesn't know who JK is, and James makes Dan choose favourites.
Jay French is again joined by Kieran Bennett as we delve into the racing from Croatia. We talk bikes, crashes, new tracks, Kiwi's and rules. James Rennie drops the ball.
The Downhill World Cup Season is upon us once again. We've decided to punish you all, by inflicting another season of coma-inducing chats via the FRNZ podcast. Once again Jay French is joined by regular co-host Kieran Bennett, however this time we're joined by punter-extraordinaire James 'Red-Dog' Rennie. On this episode we chat pre-season changes, what's new, Croatia and tell rubbish stories. Enjoy!
The season ender and a repeat World Champion. We look at the big decider between Gwin and Minnaar. Was the season a good one? We talk about the uphill pedal at the end of the Cairns World Champs track. Mick Hannah nearly does it, Sam Hill sits in the sun all day with his enduro bike, we talk rumours and speculation going into next year. Team Specialized Gravity nearly miss making history, and we put together plenty of poorly informed assumptions. Make sure you listen to the end, so you can win the prize!
It's being called the greatest downhill race of all time. We go into our highlights from the race, and we take a closer look at where everyone is sitting going into Val Di Sole, which is promising to be a super exciting final to the season.
This week is a bumper recap episode. While Jay was away in Europe snapping photos of the World Cup, we missed a few episodes, so here's all of our rubbish chat all rolled into one. We chat racing, how Enduro is taking over, we ruin Kierans Wife's night, we talk about all the things we don't like and have the usual shit chat. Enjoy.
The boys look into the racing that went down in Leogang, talk goggle tech, Gwins hatrick, Tahnees first win. We get in depth about; bikes, riders, injuries, haircuts and nicknames.
