At the 2008 Olympics, he won the silver medal in the team sprint.

2011 suspension

In January 2012 it was announced that Baugé had received a backdated 12-month suspension for missing doping tests. This meant that all his results for 2011 were nullified. This elevated Britain's Jason Kenny to gold medal position in the Sprint event at the 2011 World Championships, as well as giving the German Team Sprint team the gold medal in the same meet.


Baugé regained the World Championship Sprint title by beating defending champion Jason Kenny in the final of the 2012 event. Baugé went on to win two Olympic silver medals, in the team sprint (losing to Great Britain in the final for the second successive games), and in the individual sprint (being defeated by Kenny in the final).
