This thought puts a rotten feeling in my gut, but I too fear it as well. So far, the highest placing of any BikePure rider is Philip Deignan getting 9th at last year's Vuelta, mostly by following the right wheels in the right breaks.
What concerns me more though are all the riders in the past who spoke out against doping, but were later proven to have doped, some quite heavily (Virenque, Kohl, etc.), and in the future (present?) a person like this joining BikePure in order to be accepted by the general population as clean, plus using this as leverage to inoculate themselves from criticism, or even as a card if they test positive ("The test results must be flawed, I've been an outspoken critic of doping, and am a member of BikePure!")
