Trib­utes to voice of cy­cling Paul Sher­wen

Cycling Weekly - - WHAT YOU’RE / LETTER OF THE WEEK -

Some­where in cy­cling heaven, the “heads of state are all present and cor­rect” to re­ceive Paul Sher­wen. A loss for his wife and chil­dren, many friends, the global com­mu­nity, and the cy­cling world. I don’t know what it is like to watch the Tour de France on TV with­out him. He will be dearly missed. Jeff Over­street

Very sad news. Spent most of my youth and adult years lis­ten­ing to Paul and Phil Liggett com­men­tat­ing on the Tour. Barry Hold­er­ness

I grew up lis­ten­ing to Phil and Paul com­men­tat­ing on the Tour. One of the many rea­sons cy­cling is so dear to me. Rest easy mate, the world has lost an­other good ’un. Dan Owen

Paul was my favourite an­nouncer, al­ways so knowl­edge­able about the French coun­try­side and ter­rific colour com­men­tary. I’ve learned so much about the sport and France from him. Suzanna Teran

Such a huge loss. A great com­men­ta­tor and a great man. Loved his work on the Tour de France. Had great chem­istry with Phil and Bobke [Bob Roll]. Won’t be the same with­out him.
