The Tour of Britain cycle race has given our region a big economic boost.
The wet and windy weather took its toll in places, but official figures are expected to show that the stages between Peebles and Drumlanrig and from Carlisle to Kendal brought in millions of pounds.
Those in the tourism industry say the impact will be felt for years to come, and there are already talks about the race returning next year.
