Sheryl Loan and Jason Lamoreaux captured the Tour of Anchorage titles Sunday after the fifth and final race of the annual bicycle stage race.

The victory marked Loan’s 12th Tour of Anchorage championship — by far the most in the history of the event, which dates back to 1984 Next on the list is Tim Lamb, who owns a record eight men’s titles, the last of them coming in 2003.

Loan, whose Tour record is one of many Arctic Bicycle Club records she possesses, used decisive victories in the Clarks Road hillclimb and the Eagle River Training Center time trial to edge her daughter, Kinsey Loan, for the overall championship.

Kinsey won both road races and the criterium, but in each of those events, her mother equaled her times to maintain her overall lead.

In the final standings, Sheryl finished with a time of 4 hours, 2 minutes, 46 second. Kinsey was 63 seconds back in 4:03:49.

Lamoreaux, who won both road races and the hillclimb, finished with a total time of 4:36:41 to beat runnerup Eric Flanders by 30 seconds.
