The experienced Norwegian was handily placed in 8th after the first round with the men of the Four Hills so far, Janda and Uhrmann, in the lead. The first jump did produce shocks at both ends of the field though. Just behind Janda and Uhrmann was Italian, Sebastian Colloredo with a cracking effort of 129.5 metres. At the other end of the standings was the World Cup leader before this event, Janne Ahonen. The Finn was languishing down in 22nd place having only managed to creep over the K-Point at 120 metres.
All that changed in the second round as Ahonen rose back up to 8th, and Colloredo fell away to 24th, recording the worst second jump of the competition. It was not enough for the Finn though, and despite his relatively poor second effort Janda had done enough to snatch back top spot overall.
