Jarl Magnus Riiber uncatchable

Jarl Magnus Riiber (NOR, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) also won the second competition in Otepää (EST). Johannes Rydzek (GER, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) finished second ahead of Akito Watabe (JPN, Fischer skis, bindings and boots).

The ski jumping at noon took place in absolute calm wind conditions and the dominator of the winter was this time also the best jumper: Jarl Magnus Riiber. Although the Norwegian was 30 seconds ahead before the cross-country race, this win was not a natural one for him as with Johannes Rydzek as one of the very strong skiers as his first pursuer. Nevertheless, the winner remains the same: For more than 20 seconds, the German was not able to approach the Norwegian, who celebrated his sixth victory this winter. With this success, he again proved how fast he is this winter on skis after he ist known as an excellent jumper for years. Third place went to Akito Watabe, who outsprinted his opponents on the final straight out of a nine men chasing group. Vinzenz Geiger (GER, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) took fourth place ahead of Mario Seidl (AUT, Fischer skis, bindings and boots) and Espen Bjørnstad (NOR, Fischer skis, bindings and boots). Martin Fritz (AUT, Fischer skis, bindings and shoes) was eighth this time.
