Lahti: Karl Geiger misses podium and loses yellow card – Granerud and Kobayashi share victory

It was Ryoyu Kobayashi’s eighth win of the season.

Karl Geiger was still in second place after 125.5 m in the first round, but then fell back with 123.5 m in the final. Kobayashi managed a dream jump of 130.5 m, which promoted him from fifth to first place. Granerud, who had led after the first round, scored 278.0 points like the Japanese, World Champion Stefan Kraft (Austria/271.3) was third.

Geiger (265.9), who ultimately missed the equivalent of three meters to the podium, goes into the season finale with 1279 points as second in the World Cup behind Kobayashi (1322), but with seven competitions left in Lillehammer, Oslo, Oberstdorf and Planica everything is still possible .
