PARIS (AP) - Cycling teams are calling for an independent audit into the sport's fight against doping after Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles.

Jean-Rene Bernardeau of Europcar and Jonathan Vaughters of Garmin-Sharp-Barricuda say their teams and others would help pay for an external audit into how cycling has both succeeded and failed in fighting doping.

Vaughters, speaking Tuesday before Tour organizers present their 2013 race route, says "everyone in the sport has an intrinsic bias. But an independent commission can look at it and say, 'You know with this part, they're doing great, this part needs improvement,' and so on."

On Monday, the International Cycling Union stripped Armstrong of his titles for doping.
