Mark Johnson’s VeloNews Op-Ed: Cycling Needs a Riders Union

In this op-ed for VeloNews.com, Argyle Armada author Mark Johnson offers reasons that the sport and business of cycling would benefit from a union of riders. Johnson’s thinking on this topic came in part from his interactions with Garmin-Sharp team director Jonathan Vaughters, who has long advocated for fundamental changes in the structure of the sport.

Johnson’s op-ed comes on the heels of Vaughters’ admission last week inĀ this article for the New York Times that he doped during his pro cycling career. In the article, Vaughters says that his team has worked to eliminate the choice of doping for its riders.
