Webmaster's note: Thanks to Bob Bradford and Clark Eid for providing audio and video, to Andrew Gribble for formatting audio/video clips, and I believe to Don Bradford for taking the video clips in Iowa, and to the team member who took the finish line film.

More video/audio will be coming in soon. The clips on this page may be replaced soon, or may be added to, depending on web site space and the video/audio I receive.

Clark Eid will supply additional audio of the paddlers talking while on the water, as well as footage from the water.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed!
