PARIS, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- The director of the Tour de France said he does not want Lance Armstrong's seven victories attributed to other riders.

Christian Prudhomme said he does not want new winners declared for the races after Armstrong was stripped of his titles and the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency issued a lifetime ban to the cyclist, the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

The USADA said Armstrong is at the center of the largest doping program in the history of sports and produced more than 1,000 pages of testimony this week to support its decision.

"We cannot be indifferent to what USADA has unmasked this week. It's a damning picture that's been drawn," Prudhomme said. "What we want is that there is no winner."
