2008 Tree Farm Relay – A Huge Success!

The 2008 Tree Farm Relay is over, and it was a bigger success than last year! We had 42 teams signed up for a day of craziness, racing and good times. Perfect weather, a perfect course and the best volunteers on the planet made this the best, most fun race of the season. Team Tree Farm and Dark Horse Racing would like to thanks everyone who helped out, and all of the sponsors who chipped in. 

South Lyon Cycle, Cycletherapy, Trails Edge, KLM, American Cycle and Fitness, Dark Horse Brewing, Royal Oak Brewing, MTB-Life, WTB and Soul Cycles all really stepped up. The Tuesday Night hangout, the Lakeview Bar and Grill really came though with a donation of 200 hot dogs and all the fixings so we were able to feed almost everyone for free!

Thanks to everyone who helped and raced!
