Walker's first WSB win

1 of 1

Chris Walker has taken his first World Superbike race win in dramatic style at a wet Assen circuit.

The Brit rider took Kawasaki's first WSB win since 2000 after almost coming off in the first corner. Walker ended up in the gravel but rejoined the race in dead last then managed to fight his way through the pack on the slippery track to take an incredible first victory ahead of Andrew Pitt and Michel Fabrizio.

The conditions were so bad that only 15 riders finished out of 28 starters.

Bayliss took the win and extended his championship lead to 100 points over new second placed man James Toseland who is now just two point ahead of Noriyuki Haga.

Haga and Troy Corser both failed to finish both races.
