Don't buy the Walsh book, pleads pro rider

Scott Sunderland said: "We need guys like Lance; really, people need to stop killing their heroes." His latest diary entry at cyclingnews.com urges cyclesport fans not to line the pockets of Walsh and Ballester, authors of 'LA Confidential'.

"I honestly can't work out what benefit writing a book like this about Lance Armstrong will achieve - except make the writers a shitload of money," wrote Sunderland.

"I hope that the readers of Cyclingnews don't buy his book because I have the feeling it's all about money, the timing picked to publish it says enough don't you think?

"Cycling has been at the brunt of too many scandals - while other sports are getting away with a lot worse. I agree, some of them have deserved to come out, but most have been sensational.

"Too many people are hanging on Lance Armstrong, he is such an inspiration to so many people, in and outside the sport. We need guys like Lance; really, people need to stop killing their heroes."
