Education First

EF Education First – Drapac p/b Cannondale is an American-registered WorldTour cycling team competing at the highest level of the sport. In the 2018 season, the team will race with the youngest roster and one of the most diverse squads in the WorldTour. The team is managed by Slipstream Sports, which was founded by Jonathan Vaughters and Doug Ellis in 2005 on the belief there was a better way to run a cycling team. Michael Drapac came on board as a co-owner and sponsor in 2016, bringing with him his holistic philosophy of athlete wellbeing and development.

Slipstream Sports has always been unwavering in its commitment to anti-doping and was the first professional cycling team to institute its own internal testing protocols. It was the first WorldTour team and remains the only WorldTour team to offer an athlete wellbeing program that caters to whole athlete development and rider life beyond sport.
