TOM Gibbs continued his winning ways by taking the second event of the Lakeland Lanequest series and once again becoming the only rider to visit all 30 controls inside the two-hour time limit on a course south of Lancaster.

Organisers Martin Oglesby and Rod Carter had devised an almost flat course for the 107 competitors around Cockerham Moss.

Gibbs rode 38 miles to complete the course and get back to the finish at the Stork, Conder Green.

Behind Gibbs (302 points) were Trevor Smith (282) and David Heffernan (280). Both Gibbs and Heffernan had gear change problems and were grateful there were few hills to contend with.

The women’s open class was very close. Anne Plant (236) was the victor this week over Jo Cleary (235) and Lisa Whetter (234).

All three incurred penalty points for being over time.

In Cleary’s case, a near ten minute over-run was punished with 35 penalties, allowing Plant’s careful route planning to reign supreme over Cleary’s speed.

Jack and James Smith (258) led the generation teams for the second week, ahead of Gary and George Thomason (230).

In adult pairs, the flatter course suited the tandem of Mike and Rachel Toyn (260), with Bruce Attwood and Sally Ward (240) second and Gareth Roscoe and James Morgan (234) third.

Next event takes place at the George Hotel, Orton on Tuesday, starting at 5.30pm.
