Another wacky prop bet involving Dan Bilzerian. This marks the third Las Vegas to Los Angeles bicycle prop bet that Bilzerian has been a part of. Last month, Bilzerian completed his epic ride from Vegas to LA to win a $1.2 million wager from Bill Perkins. Prior to that, Samantha Abernathy completed a similar bicycle ride for $10,000. Now it's Brian Rast's turn to make the journey through bat country in under 48 hours. This time, only $100,000 is at stake but the terms of the wager are much crazier and riskier. Perkins/Bilzerian is giving Rast 6 to 1 odds on his journey, which he will be embarking on without any serious training and his route will be 30 miles longer (320 miles total).
Brian Rast had been in decent shape after training to fight Sorel Mizzi, so although he did not have the large lead time to prep that Bilzerian had, he still seems to be in decent shape to complete the journey and win the bet. Part of the wager is that Rast will not be able to use a recumbent bicycle, which many naysayers of Bilzerian thought was an angle-shooting cop out. Rast will also not have a drafting van, like Bilzerian used for portions of his journey.
Keep an eye on Bill Perkins' Twitter feed @bp22 or keep an eye on Bilzerian's Instagram account (I won't mention it because I know you already follow it!) for updates on Rast's journey.
