We are the same age and I have met him a few times. Sad to learn he is gone

Now saying it was heart failure.

After I retired in 1998 I returned to cycling after not riding for several years because of work obligations and family time. Say what you want about Lance Armstrong, but he created a huge interest in cycling in the USA. The networks started showing all the stages of the TDF. I sat in front of my TV listening to Paul and Phil and relearning the sport. Yeah, sometimes he said some silly stuff, and both of them seemed a little bit dated in the technology. But they came across as being two really nice kind men. Paul will be sorely missed, he was a true gentleman and a genuine nice guy.

I had a problem with my heart in 2009 and am now taking meds. I had warning signs. I was lucky. I take meds now, which slow me down a bit, but I can still ride. If you have any symptoms of a heart condition (chest pains, shortness of breath, dizzyness) see a doctor. I don't know if Paul had any indications of a heart condition, most of the time you do, but sometimes you don't . Just a precaution.

Always enjoyed listening to him on TV broadcasts no matter what. Can't know how hard it must be to fill a multi hour broadcast with always relevant correct commentary. What Zoot said. B aware of heart symptoms, which I'm sure most of you young racers are. But you never know. Dealt with Afib and did not realize it until a ride in Lake Tahoe. Never had a problem catching my breath when just trying to ride and not know why. Few close calls with the meds but still kicking.

"His head is writing checks, his legs can't cash." Has to be my favorite quote from Paul Sherwen.

62 is way too young. He was good at letting Phil know when he said something utterly ridiculous.

Getting old is scary. I'm 52, and my first USCF license was when I was like 15. So seeing pictures of him racing back in the day look "current" to me.
