VIP Guest Profile: Bob Roll
Posted: February 20th, 2017
A Bay Area, California native, Bob Roll is a former professional cyclist and current cycling sports commentator with NBC Sports Network. Most recently, he is known for his enthusiastic announcing of some of the most iconic bike races around the world – the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia, Paris-Roubax and Tour of California. As a racer, he is most remembered for his success in the now defunct Coors Classic as well as serving in a domestique role for Andy Hampsten during the 1988 Giro in which he won the Maglia rosa. He raced on the 7-Eleven Cycling Team for two more years following that historic team win, spent a season on the Motorola Cycling squad and then transitioned into a mountain bike racing career in the mid-nineties. Known for his always compelling commentary and antics, the man affectionately known to his fans as “Bobke” has penned a few books, a column for VeloNews and continues to entertain the cycling community during various charity events.
CampoVelo Napa Valley is excited to announce his involvement with our event in Napa Valley this spring.
