SPORTS QUESTION #4804

Who was suspended from the Tour in 2008 after having won two stages?

Riccardo Riccò

Explanation

Riccardo Riccò (born 1983) is an Italian professional cyclist. He raced for the ProTour-team Saunier Duval-Scott from 2006-2008, and was particularly skilled in the mountains. In 2008 he cheated his way to two stage victories in Tour de France and a 2. place in Giro d'Italia after having tested positive for doping. In 2010 he returned to the sport, but it was to be a short comeback: in 2011, Riccò was admitted to the hospital with kidney problems after having given himself a blood transfusion.
