Doctor! Doctor! I have double vision, I am seeing two of everything. Dr: "Take a seat on the chair there" Which one? OK, it’s probably not the best doctor doctor joke of the genre (personally, I like the one that goes ‘I keep comparing things with something else’ ‘Don't worry, it's only analogy’), but it is fitting to our story here. Dr Chris Leatt, the man behind Leatt mountain bike and moto products, is already a medical doctor, but is also well on his way to becoming an academic doctor too. And of course, if you told him you were seeing two of everything after a mountain bike crash, he’d have you following a bunch of concussion protocols and treatments quicker than you can say PhD My meet up with Chris gives him an excuse to leave his desk where he’s writing up his PhD and venture out on the trails at Swinley. It’s the first time his NS Synonym has tasted dirt, though his spritely efforts round the pedally trail suggest he’s managed plenty of road rides on his XC machine. He’s over in the UK on what’s become an extended trip thanks to Covid travel disruption. Apart from the not insignificant inconvenience of it rendering his South African fixed wing pilot’s licence out of date (he did manage to convert his SA helicopter license to a UK one) - the extended trip has simply given Chris and his wife the opportunity to scope out more areas of the UK and spend time with friends and family. With their children all grown up and living back home in South Africa, the empty nesters have spied the potential to spend more time in the UK in the future.
