Bilzerian accepted the bet and received worldwide support. Former professional cyclist Lance Armstrong even offered to train him. Bilzerian spent more than $100,000 on equipment and all the people helping him during the ride. Bilzerian also stood to lose his private jet to poker player Rick Salomon if he died on the road.
