William Walker earned his first victory of the season on Sunday with stage three of the Jayco Bay Classic in Geelong, Australia. Racing in Degani/CBD colours, the Australian Walker outsprinted compatriot Dean Windso (Mazda) after they formed a two-man breakaway halfway through the hilly stage.

Walker, who burst on to the international scene with a win on the same circuit in 2002 at the age of 17, is now an experienced professional in the European peloton. He will ride for the Spain-based Fuji-Servetto ProTour team this season, beginning with the Australian Open Road Cycling Championships in Buninyong on January 11.
