Queensland’s Jonathan Cantwell has won the 2009 SCODY Cup road cycling series, following the release of the series’ final standings. The 27 year-old finished with 238 points to defeat Sydney’s Richard Lang and sprinter Joel Pearson, also of NSW.

Cantwell came from behind to claim the 14-year-old cup, after missing the first of the four race series’ events - the Lakes Oil Tour of Gippsland. He won the opening stage of the GMHBA Tour of Geelong, took overall honors in the Elgas Tour of the Murray River and then won three stages of the six-day Caterpillar Underground Mining Tour of Tasmania.

Cantwell joins a star-studded list of cup winners, including Leigh Howard, Peter McDonald, Wes Sulzburger, William Walker and Giro d’Italia stage winner David McKenzie.
