U.S. Raft Team: 24 hours to Moab?

Does anyone know if they're still out there? Did they make the 24 hour mark? Must've been fun through Grand Junction!!!
All the best you guys!

It went well. They left Grizzly Creek at 11:30am Sunday and made it to Rocky Rapid take out (20 miles east of moab) in 24 hours. They are figuring out exact milage right now with a GPS. Night fell on them near Palisade and they arrived at Westwater 5:15am. I paddled the first 30 and last 40 miles with them in a sea kayak. They seemed as strong at the end as in the begining, but tired for sure. Matt and I are doing a story for Yahoo! Adventure right now and it should be on line with video by Thursday morning.
