Together they managed to expose the extent of illegal doping that was taking place within the professional cycling circuit, in particular the US postal team and its leader Lance Armstrong. His article written in 2001 and titled 'Champ of Cheat' asked the question of why Lance Armstrong, a supposed clean rider would work with the controversial Italian Doctor, Michele Ferrari. Walsh has also written three books about Lance Armstrong, in which he revealed his findings and suspicions of drug use.
