Oh my god, this is terrible. I’ve been listening to Paul and Phil since I was a kid. This is truly sad.


#3

What a shock. Very sad news. 62 is so young.


#4

That is so sad to hear. Shocking to hear really. He will be missed.


#5

Oh, what a loss. Very sad news.


#6

Very sad news. An extremely talented broadcaster who brought the tour to life for me.

Best to his friends and family at this time.


#7

So sad. To a generation of viewers (myself included) Paul and Phil are the voices of Pro Cycling. I’ll miss spending many hours with him in July.


#8

Wow. A couple of years ago, he didn’t look good for some reason but turned it around and looked better. 62 is way too young.


#9

Such sad news, I had no idea. Thanks for sharing.


#10

That is really sad news. I’ve been following pro cycling for only a few years, but his voice was already synonymous with the Tour and July.


#11

Legend. Defined the tour de france for me for sooo many years!


#12

RIP Paul. Such a great guy. You will be missed.


#13

So sad, 62 is so young!


#14

Very sad :disappointed:


#15

So sad. I learned a lot about cycling from Paul and Phil.


#16

Sad news - Liggett and Sherwin was an iconic pairing

I bet not many knew he owned a gold mine in Uganda


#17

This is very difficult news to take. Paul was such an icon and good person.


#18

I’m not often stunned by these things…but this was a big one. Being an American my mid 40s and getting into the sport, as a kid, since about 86…I literally have not known cycling without Phil and Paul’s voices…


#19

I actually wonder if Phil will call it quits?

Quite the deal to lose a partner like that after over 30 years together.
Hard to picture (and hear) him with another voice.

the Vuelta coverage this year on NBC Sports was Phil Liggett and Bob Roll. The first day or two it was a little weird hearing an American voice instead of Paul, but then I didn’t notice as Phil does most of the commentating.
