Horner joined Steve Schlanger for NBCSN’s coverage of Liege Bastogne Liege in April. The American had a successful test of his commentating prowess but admitted it was challenging.

Bob Roll will now move to the live broadcast booth to call the race alongside longtime commentator Phil Liggett.  Liggett’s former broadcast partner Paul Sherwen passed away December 2 after 40 years of racing coverage.
