The self-proclaimed ‘King of Instagram’ Dan Bilzerian has mystified the internet by finding a new way to make people not like him.
Firstly, he has placed $600,000 -roughly £420,000- on a trivial bet with poker star Bill Perkins to see if he can cycle from Los Angeles to Vegas in no more than 48 hours.
Just bet @DanBilzerian he can't bike from his house to the past Vegas sign in 48 hrs her has until March 31st to start

Secondly, and with a bit of help from Joe Rogan, the social media celebrity has called on the help of disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to help him pocket the cash.
And Lance has gleefully obliged it seems…

With the money he stands to lose I hope Perkins included terms and conditions.
Terms and conditions such as – I don’t know – blood doping not being tolerated.
Mind you, that didn’t stop Lance before.
