Independent Dutch investigators have exonerated Lance Armstrong of doping in the 1999 Tour de France. They also blame anti-doping authorities for misconduct in dealing with the Austin cycling great.

A 132-page report recommended convening a tribunal to discuss possible legal and ethical violations by the authorities.

The International Cycling Union appointed a Dutch lawyer last October to investigate all issues concerning tests conducted by France's national anti-doping laboratory of urine samples from the 1999 Tour de France.

Armstrong won his first Tour title in 1999 and went on to capture cycling's premiere race a record seven times.
