Walker achieves the first win of the season

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.
