Sports broadcaster and cycling icon Paul Sherwen passed away Sunday at the age of 62. He's pictured here at a news conference in 2011.

This year’s course for the Amgen Tour of California will be announced in Santa Clarita, which is thought to be the city where the race will begin this year – that’s still unconfirmed though that is where the press conference will be held tomorrow.  

Cycling fans in California and all over the world are feeling heartbreak from the news that commentator Paul Sherwen died Sunday night at his home in Uganda. Paul joined Phil Liggett in covering the world’s biggest races. He commentated more than 30 Tour de France races and in fact, as a professional cyclist himself, competed in the Tour seven times.

Longtime cycling journalist James Raia and former professional cyclist and U.S. team coach Mike Sayers, who now owns Dai Endurance in Sacramento, remember Sherwen.
