The International Cycling Union agrees with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, stripping Lance Armstrong's seven Tour de France titles and banning him for life.
ICU President Pat McQuaid says his federation accepted USADA's report on Armstrong and will not appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
USADA said Armstrong should be banned and stripped of his Tour titles for ``the most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen'' within his U.S. Postal Service and Discovery Channel teams.
Today's decision clears the way for Tour de France organizers to officially remove Armstrong's name from the record books.
Tour director Christian Prudhomme has said the race would go along with whatever cycling's governing body decides and will have no official winners for those years.
