Oh man, R.I.P. I absolutely loved listening to him and Phil Liggett's commentary.

Sherwen’s death was a sad, sad day for pro cycling fans. You nailed it, Hillbilly. LeTour won’t be the same without his commentary. For me he was the best.

Who would want to try and take his place with Phil,the bar is so high.

Bobke would be the guy ,the only guy, for me anyways.

Paul and Phil average around 5 hours per day of commentary during the TdF. That takes a very talented, disciplined and well rounded individual. I’m not sure Bob Roll can manage it but agree he’s the best option of the usuals. Will Phil Liggett continue without his close friend who co-hosted the TdF alongside him for decades?

Yup, super bad news, happened very suddenly and without warning from what I heard. In a sport as polarizing as Cycling finding a replacment will be difficult in order to maintain the same type of broadcast. The only retired rider I can think of to take his place would be Jens Voight. He is known for his whacky personality, sense of humor and ridiculous accent. But one thing for sure TDF is gonna sound strange now.

THERE IS NO SECOND MOTO IN LIFE!

Unfortunately we didn't have them commentating the last couple of years. The network it gets aired on here dropped them and we have Matt Keenan (very knowledgeable) and Robbie McEwan, who are both very good but no Sherwen/Liggett obviously.

Really bummed.

I likeYens. He's good but no one can replace Paul.

I always liked McEwan when he was the fiery sprinter. Are they covering the entire stages or just the highlights? It’s during those long, flat stages of little racing action when gifted commentators like Sherwen and Liggett can find interesting topics to discuss while waiting for something of relevance to happen on the road.

The entire stage. For a while Keenan would do the first hour or so, then they would switch over to Sherwen and Liggett.

That's how my dad passed away, and at 62 the day before the tour started in 2011.
