For 40 years his commentary has brought the drama and emotions of the Tour de France to millions of viewers around the World. Phil Liggett is the voice of Cycling, he was the technical director of the Milk Race for over 20years and in 2005 he was awarded an MBE for his services to cycling.
I photographed Phil Liggett at his home in Hertfordshire for Cyclist Magazine. He told us about his life behind the microphone, the races he'll never forget and his phlegmatic views on Lance Armstrong. We followed Phil on his usual ride round the lanes, shooting from the car.
