Cumbria received nearly £11m after holding two stages of the Tour of Britain cycle race in September.
This is a huge increase on the £5m economic benefit to the county when it hosted the Tour of Britain in 2016.
Accommodation providers, retailers and transport operators were among those who benefitted.
Cumbria was the first county in the tour’s history to host two full stages of the race in September.
Stage 5 featured a Team Time Trial from Cockermouth to Whinlatter and Stage 6 saw riders race along a 105-mile route from Barrow to Whinlatter, sponsored by BAE Systems.
The two stages attracting a combined total of 240,000 spectators, and 1.5 million viewers watched television coverage on ITV4.
