World Cup leader Johannes Rydzek returned to the top step of the podium with victory in the Austrian venue of Ramsau am Dachstein.

Rydzek and teammate Fabian Riessle were left to battle it out in the closing stages on the skis but it was the former who came out on top by 1.5 second, with Eric Frenzel claiming the final podium position, 8.7 seconds back, to complete a clean sweep of the medals for Germany.
