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.
