VALE PAUL SHERWEN
(by Mike O’Reilly)
Much has been written about the recent passing of Paul Sherwen (pictured below). Everybody has a Paul Sherwen story to tell and they all reflect an honesty, a sincerity & unlimited professionalism from a person who gave the cycling world a delightful warmth. You couldn’t help but feel better for being in his presence.
Rob Hadley & Glenn Vigar were good mates with Paul through the Tour Down Under in Adelaide as Rob & Glenn had driven the Shimano neutral spares car at the TDU for some 15 years. The three of us were in Flanders in 2014 watching the Belgian Spring Classics and the opportunity came up to have dinner with both Phil Liggett & Paul at the Lille Casino the night before the Paris Roubaix professional classic. It was a great night & Paul will be sadly missed.
