Two Norwegians on the podium in Bischofshofen.
Marius Lindvik led the penultimate race in Hoboka after the first round, 5.7 points ahead of Jump Week leader Ryoyo Kobayashi.
The Japanese, on the other hand, were hard to beat, as Kobayashi rushed down the hill and won after a good jump of 137.5 metres.
Lindvik could not follow the giant jump, and took second place after a jump of 135.5 meters in the last round.
Already in the middle of the race, TV 2 expert Anders Bardal was skeptical that Lindvik looked so confident after the first round.
– Lindvik looks like a frozen fish. I thought he was starting to talk more about the summary here himself. I’m more skeptical about that, Bardal said when driving the Norwegian.
On the other hand, Halvor Egner Granrud completed a good Norwegian day, getting two Norwegians on the podium.
– I crave a little. I try to get a few meters lighter at the end and then her style gets really bad too, and that’s it. I’m not happy with that, unfortunately, Lindvik tells TV 2 after second place.
There was plenty of encouragement in the first round, when 23-year-old Marius Lindvik’s jump took a clear leadership position after he completed all jumpers for the first time in the competition.
– It was great to approach him as commander in chief. There are opportunities here, so now it’s just a matter of moving forward. I’m Faith, as Lindvik told TV 2.
The Norwegian finished second in the summary in the jump week ahead of Wednesday’s competition, just over 13 points behind Japan’s Ryoyo Kobayashi. The latter was the man who followed closely after the first round at Bischofshofen.
– Lindvik looks like a frozen fish. I thought he was starting to talk more about the summary here himself. I’m more skeptical about it, but it’s in good shape, so he fixed this, it came from TV 2 jump expert Anders Bardal after a 138.5m jump.
Halvor Egner Granrud completed a good Norwegian Tour, and jumped to an impressive third place.
Johann Furfang finished well in eighth after one lap, but disappointed him too much in the other and landed at 123.5 metres. Robert Johansson jumped, and he ended up in seventh place.
Ryoyo Kobayashi should prove to be very strong, and he made a great second jump. The Japanese landed at a height of 137.5 meters, they were 2 meters better than Lindvik. Thus, the 25-year-old cemented his position as a jumping leader with one race remaining.
