Rydzek had come out on top in the previous two races this weekend but was beaten by his rival by a full 30.5 seconds at the final of the last 15km cross-country race.
World Champion Bernhard Gruber completed the podium in third, finishing one minute and 18 seconds behind Frenzel.
After two rounds of jumping, it was Rydzek who had maintained his lead, accumulating a total of 285.4 points from jumps of 106 and 105.5 metres to hold a 18-second head start on Austrian Gruber.
