This month we chat to talented photographer and long-time friend of Restrap, Simon Nieborak. Simon is the man responsible for most of Restrap’s epic Yorkshire photo shoots, braving the wild and windy moors to capture our gear in action. But his work takes him further afield too, with shoots for MTBRider, MBUK, Spoke Mag and pinkbike.com.
