McGruber (1417641) writes "Floyd Landis (wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floyd_Landis) won the 2006 Tour de France, but was later stripped of his title after testing "positive for an unusually high ratio of the hormone testosterone to the hormone epitestosterone (T/E ratio)".

In February 2010, Slashdot covered the news (http://yro.slashdot.org/story/10/02/16/0230255/tour-de-france-champion-accused-of-hacking) that Landis had been accused of hacking into the laboratory that detected the unusually high T/E ratio. Since then, Landis was "convicted in absentia by a French court 'for his role in hacking into the computers of a French doping lab'" according to National Public Radio. (http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2011/11/10/142211319/french-court-convicts-cyclist-floyd-landis-in-hacking-of-doping-lab)

Landis and his former coach Arnie Baker both received 12-month suspended sentences, according to USA Today. (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/cycling/story/2011-11-10/floyd-landis-convicted/51152204/1)
