"Jonathan Vaughters' story is the story of modern cycling. From his early years as a keen cyclist in his hometown in Colorado to his unflinching rite of passage as a professional rider with US Postal to his elevation as one of cycling's most resilient, ethical and intelligent team bosses, the highs and lows of his career have mirrored those of the sport itself. Vaughters has had a front-row seat for most of the major events in cycling over the past three decades. He was both a former teammate of Lance and a leading witness against him. And he went on to renounce doping and start the first pro cycling team to dedicate itself to clean riding, which has grown into one of the most successful teams competing today and started a movement that has swept across the sport. This is also not simply a story of races won and lost: Vaughters shows readers how he navigated the complex, international business of building Slipstream into a world-class cycling team. Over the past decade, he has led the sport out of the scandal-plagued Armstrong era. By presenting the world with a team made of talented racers built around a rigorous approach to clean racing, he set a new standard within cycling that has since spread across the peloton. Written from the unique perspective of both a racer and a team manager, One-Way Ticket gives the complete story of what it takes to build a winning team and repair the reputation of a sport"--… (lisätietoja)

Dry humor sprinkled throughout. This book helped me understand just how frustrating it is to be competing "clean" when most around you are doping. I also learned how the business model of professional cycling exploits most riders, and encourages doping. I liked that Vaughters wrote about starting a team, and keeping it going. ( )

ONE WAY TICKET: NINE LIVES ON TWO WHEELS by Jonathan Vaughters with Jeremy Whittle.
Jonathan Vaughters is a former professional cyclist and current owner/manager of EF Education First professional cycling team.
ONE WAY TICKET is his memoir. It is very powerful; very sincere; extremely introspective. Jonathan Vaughters speaks freely of his own thoughts, decisions, high and low points in life, addictions, successes, failures and mistakes. It is a true ‘tell-all’ book, yet it doesn’t spiral into a gossipy, mud-slinging bio.
I read about his early cycling days; his battles with his conscience about doping; his building of his SlipStream cycling into a world-class, international cycling team; his personal growth and his unique managerial style.
I enjoyed reading this book; every page. I underlined so many passages, that I can’t possibly cite them all.
I was very impressed with his honest introspection. His ‘examination of conscience’.
I liked the dedication. I liked the author’s note.
I liked the prologue. I liked the epilogue and acknowledgements.
I liked his ‘owning up’ to his mistakes and personal failures in life. One can’t grow and move on in life unless one first acknowledges that there are problems. (See JV’s dedication page to his grandfather, Dr. Dean H. Mosher.)
I would recommend this book. Five Stars ***** ( )

Great Book! If you want to understand what led riders to dope you should read this book. I enjoyed the first part of the book better where Vaughters lays out his cycling career starting at the age of 12. ( )
