Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

Germany’s Johannes Rydzek demonstrated his all-around strength in Saturday’s World Cup in Oslo, Norway, combining the second-best jump of the day with the sixth-best ski to arrive at the top of the podium in a time of 24:50.6. Norway’s Magnus Moan started 36 seconds back following a 12th-ranked jump, then blazed the 10-kilometer course in a second-best 24:15.2, but lost a photo finish to Rydzek, finishing just 0.6 seconds back. France’s Francois Braud finished third (+4.5), and Finland’s Iikka Herola was fourth (+10.0).

Taylor Fletcher was the top American, finishing 22nd (+1:42.6), followed by Billy Demong in 26th (+1:46.5), Bryan Fletcher in 36th (+2:43.7) and Nick Hendrickson in 47th (+5:13.8).
