Bob Roll/Phil Sherwen Grand Tour Experience(6 posts)

Bob Roll/Phil Sherwen Grand Tour Experiencems
May 16, 2002 7:57 AM
Based on the OLN commentaries of Bob Roll and Phil Sherwen, it is apparent that both of them have grand tour experience. Does anyone know of a link (or have the info) on the grand tours in which they rode and their results?
Wasn't the Bobster on 7-11? nmrideslikeagirl

Sherwen rode for La Redoute - Motobecane in 1982 and finished the Tour 111th.

In 1984, he finished 116th.

In 1978, he finished 70th.

It didn't specify, but I'm assuming for the same team.
