I thought Duke was not the brightest dog around. After all, he only knows a few words like: sit, stay, and OK... But maybe I underestimated him.
Before I left for my ride today, I cleaned off the kitchen table. But apparently left a bag of Wonderful Pistachios. After a couple hours on the bike, I got home to find this.... At least he put the shells on the table mat for easy cleaning. Thanks Duke! Since you showed me that courtesy, I am not even mad.

Redlands Stage 1: Beaumont Road Race My roll today was domestique. So I had the opportunity to go to the car a few times and bring up water to the team. The first lap intense and very aggressive. Lap 2 settled down a bit. Lap 3 I missed the feeds in the feed zone and tried (failed) to convince other teams to give me water. I burned a few matched trying to catch back onto the pack after the feed zone and it took a lot out of me. Lap 4 was much better but then I flatted near the top. After I got a wheel change I rode in steady for the last lap and a half with them with the only goal being to make the time cut. Mission accomplished!
Key Stat of the day.... 4600 calories in 5 hours!
Also, I will be using Strava.com for your entertainment. It is a pretty cool site that lets you upload your GPS data and have it calculate KOM's and other pretty cool things. You could call it an online cycling community. You can do it free or you can get a membership. If you want the membership, I have a coupon code to save you some money.
