Luke Davison (Budget Forklifts) scored his seventh win of the Australian National Road Series season, surviving a final-lap crash that took out several general classification contenders at the Yarrawonga Criterium.

The first stage of the Tour of the Murray River, a 30-lap criterium around a 1.2km circuit on the water front saw the peloton unleash plenty of speed, with the 22-year-old throwing down the gauntlet to reigning Australian Criterium Champion Anthony Giacoppo (Genesys Wealth Advisers) to show just who is the form sprinter heading towards the point end of the season.

"It's always great to start off the tour like that," Davison said. "The first one's always the hardest.

"We had most of our teammates up there and they did the job."

Davison's teammate Ryan MacAnnally finished a close second, with Alex Carver (Genesys Wealth Advisers) third, with Giacoppo back in seventh place.

The peloton at the Tour of the Murray River is the smallest of the season so far, with just 71 starters, but it didn't result in an incident-free start to the 14-stage tour. In 2011, close to 20 crashes involving around 60 riders marked the first six stages of the event - 100 riders were on the start line in Yarrawonga 12 months ago.

An early crash took out Pat Shaw (Genesys Wealth Advisers) although he recovered for a top-10 placing but the major crash of the stage heading into the final lap was the most cause for concern. Malcolm Rudolph (Drapac Professional Cycling) Brenton Jones (Genesys Wealth Advisers), Josh Taylor and Caleb Jones (GPM Wilson Racing), along with Olympic silver medallist Glenn O'Shea (SASI) all hit the deck, but it was Shannon Johnson (Charter Mason - Drapac Development Team) who came off worst with a fractured collarbone.

Taylor's earlier efforts in the intermediate sprints elevated him to the joint classification lead with Davison and MacAnnally. Carver is one second in arrears with Stuart Shaw (Drapac) at three seconds.
