A Waterford man's antics have gone viral after he challenged disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to a race - on his tiny child's bicycle.

The amused American was obviously tickled by the Irishman's public dare and provisionally agreed to the joust.

In an exchange on Twitter, Michael from Waterford said he would race Armstrong "anytime, anywhere".

But shrewd Armstrong gave Michael a bit of a tip: "May wanna air up that rear tyre first".

Michael added: "Meet me here at 7pm and we'll race. No cheating this time."

Lance replied: "It'll be a level playing field, just like the old days."
