I have two videos for you!
The first is the team crossing the line and Aliy mushing the team literally right into their tent! (NOTE: the little red spots on the ground in the finish chute is salmon roe from the thawed fish snacks they got at the finish – it looks pretty gruesome!)
The second is the audio Bridgett captured as they crossed the line combined with some fantastic photos from Jen Nelson and Urs Wyss. You can hear Allen’s mandatory gear check by Janice the volunteer checker, his passport check by the officials, then he answers some questions from the press nearby. Listen for when Aliy tells him she’s going to take the team and you’ll hear Mac and Schmoe start screaming to go again!
NOTE: The first minute or so is a little quiet but it gets louder.
