The Santos Tour Down Under team is in shock and deeply saddened by the news overnight that Paul Sherwen has passed away suddenly.
Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with Paul’s family, and also with Phil Liggett, during this difficult time.
Whilst this makes no sense as we process this news, what we do know is that our lives and the Santos Tour Down Under were all the more richer for having the privilege and honour of Paul being a long-term part of the Tour Down Under team. He was a true professional, brought great insight to the fans, he was generous, always had a smile on his face and put one on yours, and had a deep passion and care for the work he did and the people he worked with and for, including the riders and fans.
There is a place in our hearts which will now be empty as we look back and think of all the wonderful moments we have shared with Paul at the Tour Down Under. January will not be the same without him. May he rest in peace.
