UCI President Pat McQuaid speaks to the press
World governing body decides not to appeal to CAS
The UCI has announced that it will ratify the USADA verdict, banning Lance Armstrong for life and stripping him of his seven Tour de France victories.
Speaking at a press conference in Geneva, UCI president Pat McQuaid said: "We will not appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport and will recognise the sanction that USADA gave. The UCI will ban Lance Armstrong from cycling and strip him of his 7 Tour de France titles. Lance Armstrong has no place in cycling."
Armstrong announced he would no longer fight USADA's charges in August and was subsequently banned by the American Anti-Doping Agency. USADA disqualified all of Armstrong's results from August 1, 1998.
USADA published its Reasoned Decision on October 10, revealing details of all the evidence against Armstrong. It included confessions and confirmation that Armstrong doped from a number of former teammates at the US Postal Service team.
Armstrong has always denied doping and has called the USADA investigation a witch hunt.
