ONE Peebles cycling fan has made her mark on the very first Women's Tour of Scotland.

Some of the biggest names in women's cycling took part in the three-day event earlier this month.

And the winner of the Best Young Rider was presented with a jersey designed by schoolgirl Erin Acherman.

The 15-year-old's design, inspired by the hills of the Tweed Valley, was the pick of the peloton for race organisers.

Erin's prize included one of her own jersey's signed by all the the inaugural tour winners.

Mum Judith told us: "Erin was inspired by the hills in the Tweed Valley and part of her prize was to go in the convoy car and hear all the race excitement from a prime spot."

Despite difficult conditions for much of the three stages, the Women's Tour of Scotland has been hailed as a huge success.

Riders from some of the world's top teams set off from Dundee for Dunfermline on stage one.

Day two of the race took the riders from Perth to Glasgow.

And the finale involved a loop through Peeblesshire from the start and finish in Edinburgh.

An estimated 100,000 cycling fans lined the 350 kilometre route over the three days.

Winner of the race was 30-year-old American Leah Thomas from Team Bigla.

And it was another Bigla team member, Nikola Noskovao won Erin's Best Young Rider jersey.
