Time for another high-stakes prop bet. The third installment of “riding a bicycle from Las Vegas to Los Angeles” (approximately 300 miles) involves Brian Rast. He accepted the joint-challenge from Bill Perkins and Dan Bilzerian at 6 to 1 odds. Rast put up $100K of his own money, so if he successfully rides a bicycle from Vegas to L.A., then he will ship $600,000. Only one catch…Rast is doing a slightly longer ride today with less than a week of training!

Dan Bilzerian giving 6 to 1 odds that Brian Rast can repeat his Vegas > LA bike ride

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.

UPDATE....

 

Tuesday night at 10:30pm PT... If Brian Rast wants to win $600,000 for riding a bike from Las Vegas to Los Angeles in under 48 hours, then he better pick up the pace. Rast departed Vegas on Monday night and only managed 60 miles in 7 hours before he stopped for the night. Rast struggled on Tuesday competing against massive wind gusts and was forced to take a break for several hours. With 22 hours left on the clock, Rast passed Barstow, California and now only has 140 miles to go. His deadline to reach the LA city limits is Wednesday at 7:32pm PT. It's going to be a tough sweat with Rast fighting those brutal winds.

At 6:30am PT local California time, the only update came from Brian Rast's Twitter feed...

 

Despite knowing this would be the most difficult challenge of my life, this has exceeded expectations. Gut check time! --- from @tsarrast

 

It's now 8:30am PT and Rast has 11 hours to go. Unknown location. Have no idea how far out he is....but the good news for Rast is once he gets out of the Cajon pass and reaches Victorville, he can coast downhill toward the city limits.

Quickie update... at 9:15am PT, Perkins mentioned that he thinks Rast can do it because he's outside Palmdale, CA.


From Perkins last tweet:

"outside of Palmdale, super tired but IMO he does it.....on pace"

Looks like 60-70 miles in 10 hours seems doable. Stay tuned.
