Jarl Magnus Riiber made it back-to-back wins in Lillehammer to take control of the Nordic Combined World Cup event in front of his home crowd.

The Norwegian outjumped Germany’s Eric Frenzel by five metres to finish with a combined score of 131.8 in the men’s mass start.

Riiber also took victory on Friday, just holding off Frenzel in a frantic finish to the cross-country.

Frenzel again finished second here with an overall score of 123.7, while his compatriot Fabian Riessle was third in 123.6.

Riessle look set for second until the jump, where Frenzel just beat him by 0.1.
