A couple of weeks ago the memory card for my camera became corrupted. I still had photos from Surf City Cyclocross and the San Francisco Bike Expo to pull from the card, and I was afraid I lost them forever!
I used a handy-dandy tool called PhotoRec, which easily and quickly recovered my photos from the card whew! The above photo came from the November Surf City Cyclocross race at the Santa Cruz County Fairgrounds. The next race in the Surf City series takes place December 16, 2012.
