Ryoyu Kobayashi won the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup from the HS 105 meter normal hill in Trondheim (NOR) on Tuesday.
The Japanese athlete came out on top ahead of Peter Prevc from Slovenia and Jan Hörl from Austria.
Andreas Wellinger finished in fourth place.

For Ryoyu Kobayashi, it was his second victory after 10 second places this winter. "It felt great and I'm very happy with the competition today. I'm looking forward to the competition on the large hill tomorrow and I hope i will be able to jump as good as today," explained Kobayashi. "My goal is to get into the top 10 in the RAW AIR".
Despite second place in Oslo on Sunday and victory in Trondheim today, Kobayashi only has a theoretical chance of winning the overall RAW AIR ranking. The 27-year-old was eliminated in 38th place after the first run in Oslo on Saturday, losing a huge number of points on the top field.
Kobayashi is in 17th place on the RAW AIR with 893.5 points, the leader Stefan Kraft (today in 5th place) from Austria has 1050.3 points in his account. Johann Andre Forfang (1030.1 points / 10th place today) and Jan Hoerl (1027.2 points / 3rd place today) follow in second and third place in the overall RAW AIR rankings.

The Slovenian Peter Prevc was once again able to deliver a top performance with second place in his final season. Since Prevc announced the end of his career, things have been going extremely well for the Slovenian superstar.

Jan Hörl finished third: "The result today was mega cool, I picked up the rhythm well, I knew what I had to do. I like the large hill on which we have the competition tomorrow even better, I hope that it goes so well again tomorrow," said Hörl.
The competition was the premiere on the new HS 105 meter hill and at the same time the dress rehearsal for the Nordic World Ski Championships 2025 in Trondheim. "I really like the facility, the rooms for us athletes have become really cool, the Norwegians have done a great job, it could be a really good World Championships next year," Hörl said happily.

Philipp Raimund, Halvor Egner Granerud, Daniel Huber and Roman Koudelka finished 6th to 9th in the daily ranking.
Alex Insam was convincing in 12th place and Aleksander Zniszczol was the best Pole in 22nd place.

On Wednesday the competition from the HS 138 meter large hill will take place in Trondheim, starting as today at 16:00.
