ONE WAY TICKET is the story of a man and modern cycling.

Jonathan Vaughters is one of the leading figures in world cycling, a record-breaking mountain climber, Tour de France stage winner and former teammate to Lance Armstrong. He is now manager of the renowned Education First World Tour team.

In ONE-WAY TICKET: Nine Lives and Two Wheels he describes a journey from driven teenage prodigy, travelling to races in the back of his Dad's station wagon, to an obsessive determination to make it big - whatever the cost. He tells the story of his transformation from poacher to gamekeeper, detailing his painful decision to finally come clean about his own doping - and to persuade others to do likewise - by providing more than enough shocking testimony to USADA (US Anti-Doping Agency) to explode the Armstrong myth.
Working in collaboration with The Times' critically acclaimed cycling correspondent Jeremy Whittle, Vaughters reveals the ease with which, his illusions shattered, he walked away from European racing. He documents his own suffering in races, the trials of establishing a team and mentoring young riders, and the dizzying highs of success in races such as the Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Paris-Roubaix.

Jonathan Vaughters shares his unique experience to lift the lid on a world he has both loathed and loved. Along the way he details the fights and fall-outs with cycling's leading figures, including Lance Armstrong, Pat McQuaid, Johan Bruyneel, Bradley Wiggins and Dave Brailsford.

“Showing the descent into doping during cycling in the 90's”

JV's explanation of how he got into using EPO has parallels with David Millar's book. In many ways there are really 2 books here. JV as a cyclist and JV as a manager of a cycling team. The first... More
