How do I ingest 25f from XL-H1 to Avid express?

I was on a recent 3 days shoot shooting DVCPro (using a 2/3 camera). I was supplied a JVC 101 to use as a B camera. The JVC turned out to be broken when we unpacked the camera. (Before you ask, it worked when we checked it out the day before)

I had my personal XL-H1 with me and since we were e shoothig Progressiv, I decided to shoot in HDV 25f to best match the quality of the DVCPro.

I (stupidly) assumed Avid supported 25f by now (I have FCP at home), but the Production company have a few Avid Express suites that they will be using for this project.

Im going there on Monday to capture the footage (I have to use my camera as the Sony decks wont play back the Canon footage)

What way is the best to get this footage into a DVCPro time line in Avid?
Should I capture it in FCP at home and convert it to DVCPro there and bring it on an external HD?
Or is it not possible?

Any help would be appreciated.

PS Im not an editor, Im a cameraman that mostly hand over my footage to Editors after a dayus work
