EP7: Never Give Up

This episode of The EF Dispatch takes you behind the scenes of a team that came together in some of the most challenging times, and displayed an amazing example of what teamwork can achieve when no-one is prepared to give up. It tells the tale of a story of rising each morning and going out there side-by-side, preparing to put everything on the line for one another, time and time again. Cycling is rarely filled with fairy tales, but on stage 18 of the Vuelta a España, everything they were dreaming and hoping would happen, eventually did.

EP5: An interview with Jonathan Vaughters

EF Pro Cycling's CEO, Jonathan Vaughters, was just 19 years old when his dream of becoming a pro cyclist came true, but it didn’t happen the way he thought it would. Instead of racing internationally on an American team, Jonathan (or JV for short) was offered a spot on a Spanish team. In this episode, JV tells us how he took a leap into the unknown to follow his dream, and how the personal and professional challenges he faced abroad made him into the person he is today. This episode was first published in June 2018 on the EF Outbound podcast.  Subscribe today to catch all of The EF Dispatch episodes. To learn more about EF Pro Cycling, visit efprocycling.com.

EP4: A Giro Rookie

Welcome to our Giro d’Italia rookie podcast with Nate Brown and Sean Bennett for The EF Dispatch podcast. A couple days before the Giro d’Italia was about to kick off, I pulled Nate Brown to one side and suggested the idea of him and Sean recording a rookie diary during the race, would he be up for it? Thankfully he agreed to it and to getting Sean Bennett on board. And so their audio Giro d’Italia journey began, from their days of hitting rock bottom, to going for glory in the break to making sure their Mums knew they were thinking about them. So buckle up and tune in to their “Down and Out” podcast, their naming not mine, by rookie, Sean Bennett and experienced hand, Nate Brown. Enjoy! Thanks to producer, Tom Whalley and EF Education First. For more information about studying with EF visit ef.com
