Lance Armstrong to chip in on Poker Playersí LA to Las Vegas Cycling Bet worth $1.2M

Tags: Dan Bilzerian, Lance Armstrong.
Posted on Monday, February 29, 2016 by "T".

Lance ArmstrongDan Bilzerian, the self-proclaimed Instagram King who has more than a few millions in the bank and plays poker part-time, hit the headlines once again a week right after a wild prop bet between him and fellow poker enthusiast, Bill Perkins, a hedge fund manager and venture capitalist.

Let's say that you hadn't ridden a bike in 18 years. But if there's $1.2 million up for grabs, would you be able to endure biking 270+ miles within 48 hours? Moreover, what if Lance Armstrong offers to help you prepare and get into shape first?

The bet is for $1.2 million, and it states that Dan has to complete a cycling circuit starting from his residence in Los Angeles to the "Welcome to the Las Vegas" sign within 48 hours, and it was scheduled no later than March 31, 2016.

Dan posted on Twitter that the distance is approximately 278 miles, but he also said that he hadn't been on a bike in 18 years.

Both men put on the table $600,000 each
Bill slapped the challenge right after Dan himself had bet Samantha Abernethy, another poker player, a modest amount of $10,000 saying that she could not complete the same ride within 72 hours.

Joe Rogan, UFC commentator and stand-up comedian, told Dan, "Hey brother, Lance Armstrong says he wants to help you get ready for this bike wager you've got going on. Want me to give you his number?"

Some of Dan's 1.33 million Twitter followers were quite skeptical about Lance Armstrong's offer to help and what kind of advice he can provide, since he was known to be banned from the cycling sport for life in 2012 due to doping, and he was even stripped down of his 7 victories from Tour de France.

A derisive remark from one follower said, "Just need EPO, human growth, test, insulin, clenbuterol and a few blood transfusions and you will do fine." Another wrote, "F*** Lance Armstrong's number, get the number of his pharmacist."

Dan BilzerianBill also challenged Lance Armstrong that he also do the same ride for a wager of $200,000, but he should finish it within 15 hours. Some of Bill's Twitter followers readily accepted the challenge for Lance, suggesting that the money could be given to charity. However, Lance Armstrong himself has not yet responded.

Bill Perkins runs his own hedge fund and he also had won in the poker circuit an amount of $2.5 million. On the other hand, Dan Bilzerian, whose dad was known to be a successful corporate raider on Wall Street and set up a large trust fund for him, is said to be worth $100 million. According to Dan's Twitter feed, he aims to live the playboy lifestyle to the max.

"According to Dan's Twitter feed, he aims to live the playboy lifestyle to the max." well if that's correct then that $100 million trust fund his dad has set up for him might evaporate quite quickly. on the other hand dudes like him create lots of buzz for other mere mortals/mobbits like us to soak up.

Even IF he is allowed to ride on the Interstate it would be a daring and implausible venture.



Oh, I really miss this scenery...

A hundred mill trust fund should be enough to live comfortably the rest of your life just by sucking off the interest's tits for nickel and dime. Goddamn these people anyway. BTW he can't do it IMO.

Absolutely correct !! But some people like challenge to find what they don't have yet. Sometimes even put them in dangerous. Hiking to mount Everest for example. The most important point is what is a life ?

I am from a bicycle country and this is very "easy", so let's calculate this,

278 miles =
447.4 kilometers

447.4 / 48 (hours) = 9.3 km per hour on average

but you need to sleep and brakes, so let's take around every hour of bike riding a 15 minute break

1 hour ride - 15m break (1:15)
1 hour ride - 15m break (2:30)
1 hour ride - 15m break (3:45)
1 hour ride - 15m break (5:00)
1 hour ride - 15m break (6:15)
1 hour ride - 15m break (7:30)
1 hour ride - 15m break (8:45)
1 hour ride - 15m break (10:00)
1 hour ride - 15m break (11:15)
1 hour ride - 15m break (12:30)
1 hour ride - 15m break (13:45)

12+ hours of sleeping eating and resting

conclusion day1:

11 hours of bike riding (speed: 20kmph (12mph)
traveled: 11h x 20km = 220km (136.7 miles)

repeat second day with a bit of extra riding = profit

he should invest in a good seat though Cool
