GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) — Anti-corruption adviser Transparency International says cycling's governing body should respond to the Lance Armstrong doping affair by ordering independent investigations and widespread reforms.

TI says cycling has been "scandal-ridden" for years, and the International Cycling Union should follow FIFA's lead by asking transparency experts to review its structure.

The not-for-profit group says "bold reforms are needed to win back trust and integrity in competitive cycling".

TI suggests a four-step reform process for the International Cycling Union (UCI) including a code of ethics for officials and better protection for whistleblowers, "so that those who witness wrongdoing feel safe reporting it".

It proposes that the UCI support an independent investigation into past scandals.

TI says "the woes of Lance Armstrong may yet come to be a watershed for cycling's governing body."
