Competitors Podcast: Jonathan Vaughters

Good show. Lots more candid than I expected.

Jonathan Vaughters was a professional cyclist who basically quit his sport young, at the age of 30, partly because he was frustrated by the rampant drug use. Now Vaughters is running the Slipstream Cycling Team and accountability is the name of the game. His team will administer 1200 drug tests to their athletes this year alone and the media will be invited to training camps so that they can see that Team Slipstream is clean. He is out to change the culture of the sport of cycling by hopefully proving that you can be competitive and drug free at the same time. Vaughters was incredibly open and honest in this conversation.

Listening to it now.

Ok, initially, seeing pics of Vaughters, I thought he looked like a pretentious, stuck-up, pinot-sipping *******. And to an extent, he certainly is a bit pretentious. But he backs it up and his goals are certainly noble. Listening to him talk about the layered system, grounded in the philosophy of "show up, do your best", was very interesting... Hopefully his system works.

Thanks for the link, it's been a great listen so far.

Putting it on my iPod now so I'll have something to listen to on the trainer for an hour.

Nice find.
