Jonathan Vaughters Talks Doping Reform

When Jonathan Vaughters published his op-ed in the New York Times admitting to doping as a pro cyclist, BICYCLING requested an interview hoping to learn more about why he chose to finally come forward, and what he hoped to accomplish with his admission. He declined to address his time on U.S. Postal, citing a wish to respect the ongoing USADA investigation into alleged doping practices on the team, but was otherwise open. In a nearly two-hour conversation at his Denver home, Vaughters talked in detail about his career, his decision to dope and struggles to try to be competitive without pharmaceutical help, and how those experiences shaped his interest in the sport’s reform. This transcript has been edited for clarity and organization, but is otherwise unchanged.

In our first installment of our four-part interview with Garmin-Cervélo's Jonathan Vaughters, we talked about how the merger (if that's the right word) came about between two ambitious, young franchises. From instability comes some serious ballast; from chaos comes a broader program, a bigger, more ambitious single project under the Slipstream Sports franchise. So what does that mean on the road for the newly transformed team Garmin-Cervélo?

On December 10, Slipstream Sports owner and Garmin-Cervélo manager Jonathan Vaughters wrote an op-ed piece at CyclingNews calling for a new approach to structuring the sport of cycling. The editorial followed in the wake of the Geox disaster, in which the Pro Tour stiffed the team, the new sponsor threatened to jump ship, and the team suddenly stood on shaky ground.
