Rouleur Podcast July - Mapei and Vaughters
An honest and revealing interview with Jonathan Vaughters of EF Education First.
"I realised what my performance could be with EPO and I realised what it could be without it. Once you realise that, any time you're racing without it....you kind of give up."
Jonathan Vaughters has always been one of the most outspoken voices in pro-cycling and, in his new book One Way Ticket, he talks frankly about doping - past and present, depression and the "five percent of joy" that keeps him in love with the sport. He stopped off on his way to Brussels to talk about the book and his career with Ian Parkinson.
