Franz-Josef Rehrl's dream weekend continued as he secured his second victory at the Nordic Combined Triple in Chaux-Neuve.

Fresh from his maiden win in the 5km Individual Gundersen on Friday, the Austrian finished 24.3s clear of Japan's Akito Watabe following the ski jumping and a 10km race.

Watabe nudged out Germany's Fabian Riessle for second by just 0.5s, while Norway's Espen Bjoernstad was only 0.4s off the podium in a frantic finish to the race.

But out front Rehrl was in firm control after his 117.5m jump gave him a 45s advantage before the 10km, which he finished in 22m58.7s.

He now moves fifth in the overall World Cup standings, with Norway's Jarl Magnus Riiber still comfortably out in front.
