Poker player collaborates Lance Armstrong ahead of freakish bet

Pro poker player Dan Bilzerian, who is also the 'Playboy of Instagram', has teamed up for shamed US cyclist Lance Armstrong before trying cycling from Hollywood to Las Vegas in just 48 hours.

Dan accepted this bet from fellow poker player pro Bill Perkins for US$ 600000 to finish the ride from Bilzerian's California's Hollywood Hills home to the Las Vegas sign within 2 days.

Dan would require to cover 471 kilometers to win the bet, across the same distance as Hastings to Auckland. Win suggests that he would be able to pay off US$ 350000 to cover a very recent poker loss. Google Maps predicted that the distance would take twenty-six hours of straight riding, which generally takes around 4 and a half hours to drive.

Speaking to a leading US based newspaper, Dan told that this is not a joke. None does this. From Los Angeles to Sin City, he has a 13000 foot climb that is almost half of Mount Everest - but he wanted a challenge. He told that he has plans to spend approximately US$ 125000 on equipment, support staff as well as chase vans including a doctor, bike techs, two chefs, masseuse, an assistant and trainer.

Whether you lose or win, he would offer US$ 25000 to Armstrong's child-cancer charity. Bilzerian added that this is not a joke. No one does this. From Los Angeles to Las Vegas, he has a 13000 foot climb that is almost half of Mount Everest, but he wanted a challenge.
