The dynamic duo taught us about the beauty of cycling and we are grateful.
“How could we have fallen in love with this sport without their passion and their ability to set up the drama?

My team mate for 33 years was no longer with me. Your hundreds of messages showed how well @PaulSherwen was loved. Let’s think of Katherine and his children with love just now.”
