A CLOVENFORDS design studio can claim the yellow jersey after producing a stunning trophy for this year's Tour of Britain.

The Scottish Borders will host an entire stage of the road race on Sunday, September 8.

And the winner of the gruelling 160 kilometre stage will be presented with a commemorative trophy from Caddon Design.

The stunning glass trophy with oak plinth has been made by Kenny Scott.

He was joined this week at Scott's View by local business councillor Mark Rowley for the unveiling.

Councillor Rowley said: “The Scottish Borders has hosted the Tour of Britain six times in the past 10 years, but this September will be the first time that we’ve had both the start and finish of a stage, and also the whole route is within the Scottish Borders area.

"This gives us a fantastic opportunity to showcase more of the area than before and for even greater economic benefits.

“We felt it was only fitting to recognise this with a special trophy for the stage winner and this design will act as a reminder to whichever rider crosses the finish line first in Kelso of a memorable day in the beautiful Scottish Borders."

The OVO Energy Tour of Britain begins in Glasgow’s George Square on Saturday, September 7, finishing eight days later in Manchester city centre.

ITV4 will once again screen live free-to-air coverage from start to finish of each stage in the UK, along with a nightly highlights programme of the best of the action.
