Johan Forfang, GmbH |  He missed the podium for Forfang in Lahti

Tromsøværingen rose to 125.5 and 126.5 meters in Lahti. He finished in the same position he was in after the first round.

Furfang then shared it with Robert Johansson. Both were just 1.8 points behind the leaders, but the latter collapsed and dropped to 15th place after a weak final jump of 113.5 metres.

Jan Hörl won the race by 1.9 points over Peter Breivk. The Austrian also took the lead midway through the competition.

He left the Al-Nasr match

Norway had three men in the top six after the first round. Hörle then separated Kristoffer Eriksen Sundahl by just 2.5 points in sixth place.

Sundal suffered the same fate as Johansson and finished 22nd. He finished just ahead of Halvor Egner Granerud on the results list.

Marius Lindvik rose from 19th to 12th place. He made jumps of 117 and 123 metres. Frederik Velomstad was unable to advance from the first round.

The winds in Lahti, as has often happened before, caused delays and varying conditions in the jump race.

I stayed at home

Norway won the World Cup team competition on Saturday for the first time in more than three years.

Also this weekend, national team coach Alexander Stöckel and sporting director Klaas Brede Brathen stayed home due to internal strife between the jumpers and the management team.

Next weekend, the World Cup matches will continue in Holmenkollen. These will be the first Raw Air races of the year.
