An evening with Phil Liggett & Paul Sherwen
Cascade Bicycle Club is very proud to present an evening with TWO of the true legends in the history of cycling; Phil Liggett, MBE and Paul Sherwen. Phil is universally referred to simply as "The Voice of Cycling." For those of us who watch cycling regularly, he is indeed considered royalty; someone who is totally revered and whose voice transcends the sport itself. His broadcast partner for many of these years, Paul Sherwen will be joining Phil onstage for one glorious evening you'll not want to miss!
Phil is a former amateur cyclist and active cycle advocate, and has worked as a television commentator since 1978. In addition to the many bicycle events he has covered eight summer and five winter Olympic Games for ITV, BBC, CBS and NBC. He has also worked on Thirty-Seven "Tour's de France" events, never having being home to Hertfordshire, England during the month of July since 1973!
In June 2005, he became a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen's Birthday Honors list and in October 2007 he was given a Lifetime Achievement award by the US Hall of Fame.

In 2012, Sherwen was an analyst for road and track cycling coverage at the 2012 London Olympics. Sherwen first covered the Olympics in 1996 in Atlanta and again in 2008 for the Beijing Games.
Sherwen is one of the most well-known voices in cycling, providing analysis for NBC Sports Group's coverage of various events including the Tour de France.
