U.S. Nordic Combined veteran Billy Demong charged ahead in Sunday’s 10 k race at Val di Fiemme, Italy, to post the fastest time of the day and finish third overall for his best World Cup result this season.

Demong ranked 17th in the jump and started 17 spots behind eventual winter Akito Watabe of Japan. He finished 3.9 seconds off Watabe’s winning time of 28:27.8. Mikko Kokslien (NOR) won silver (+3.0).

After Demong, American teammate Bryan Fletcher placed seventh (+18.6), tying his previous best World Cup result from December in Seefeld, Austria. His brother, Taylor Fletcher, went from jumping 33rd to skiing the fifth-fastest split on Sunday for 14th overall. Johnny Spillane also finished in the top 20 in 19th.
