Ulverston's David Heffernan was just unable to make it two wins from two Lakeland Lanequests events this season, as he came second to Tom Gibbs in the second event of the year on Tuesday.

Lakeland Lanequests returned to the Strickland Arms, Sizergh, where 66 cyclists set off to navigate their way around an extremely demanding course set by planner and orienteer Tim Goffe.

Men’s multiple solo champion Gibbs, who is from Backbarrow, returned to action and cleared the course with 300 points and 40 seconds to spare.

A dogged performance by last week’s victor Heffernan saw him a close second, 16 points down, but leading the class overall after two events. Andy Stubbs was a further 16 points behind, followed by a resurgent David Cowgill, riding as a solo after winning last week in the adult pairs.

After dead heating last week, Helen Jackson this time beat arch-rival Jo Cleary with an excellent score of 280 points, which would have placed her third in the men’s category.

Yet again, the Adult Pairs/3’s saw the largest entry - 37 cyclists - with tandem pair Rachel and Mike Toyn topping out the class on 240 points after last week’s second place.

In second place this week, another consistent performance from Richard Davies and Julia Richardson saw them move into second in the overall standings, with the similarly consistent Gary Thomas and Ian Ramsey chomping at their heels in third.

For the first time, running alongside the event was a mini Lanequest, organised by the Kendal Wheels for All Charity Group, who focus on giving all children and adults with disabilities and needs the opportunity to engage in cycling activity.

Riding fixed geared trikes, Rebecca and Chris managed to bag all six specially-placed controls within the time limit, resulting in a draw.
