The International Cycling Union says the seven Tour de France titles stripped from Lance Armstrong for doping will not be awarded to any riders.
The UCI also says Armstrong and "all other affected riders" in the case should return their prize money.
Cycling's governing body also will "establish a fully independent external commission to look into the various allegations made about UCI relating to the Armstrong affair." It has been accused of accepting $125,000 from Armstrong to cover up suspicious doping tests.
As well as leaving the Tour winner's list blank from 1999-2005, the UCI agreed "not to award victories to any other rider or upgrade other placings in any of the affected events."
