Vinzenz Geiger has claimed his second win of the Nordic Combined World Cup season, triumphing in the second event of the Nordic Combined Triple in Seefeld.

The German only had the fifth-best jumping total, but covered the 10 kilometres of cross-country skiing in 24min 49.3sec to take victory in Austria.

Geiger's cross-country effort was the best of the day.

Overall season leader Johannes Lamparter picked up the silver medal in his home country after finishing 1.7sec behind Geiger, while Norway's Jørgen Gråbak rounded out the podium after crossing the line 4.2 off the leader.

The Seefeld event has seen the return of Norwegian Jarl Magnus Riiber, who missed the previous four contests due to a recurring back injury.

Riiber dominated the early stages of the World Cup season, winning seven of the first eight stages, but slipped to second in the standings in his absence.

The 24-year-old won yesterday's event but finished in a disappointing 10th today in the second Gundersen in Seefeld, more than a minute behind Geiger.

Riiber almost suffered another injury today but one of potential catastrophic proportions.

He was caught by a sudden gust of wind right after he took off for his jump, which almost blew him off course on the Toni-Seelos-Olympiaschanze normal hill.

However, he managed to control his landing but only travelled 100 metres to score 119.9 points, putting him at a disadvantage for the cross-country leg.

Riiber was awarded 13 points for his performance which takes his overall season score to 763.

He lost ground on Lamparter, whose 40 points from today's action sees him climb to 870 overall.

Geiger occupies third place with 676 points.

The athletes remain in Seefeld for the final leg of the Nordic Combined Triple tomorrow, which features a 12.5km Gundersen.

Seefeld is the last venue on the World Cup calendar before the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympic Games.
