Vaughters supports ASO’s Tour de France-Netflix deal

The Tour de France may be coming to Netflix in a series that could raise the profile of professional cycling in a way never seen before, but true to form for the sport, some of the top teams are not convinced of the merits of the project. EF Education-EasyPost manager Jonathan Vaughters, however, is fully on board.

Vaughters, the former president of the International Association of Professional Cycling Teams, was once one of the most outspoken critics of the sport’s business model and on the reluctance of Tour de France organizers ASO to share the wealth generated by broadcast rights. But contrary to QuickStep-AlphaVinyl manager Patrick Lefevere’s view, Vaughters now feels that ASO are offering a good deal.
