He relegated Pyeongchang Olympic champion David Gleirscher from Austria, who was leading after the first run, to second place with 0.121 seconds.

The Latvian Kristers Aparjods came third. The three-time Olympic champion Felix Loch from RC Berchtesgaden missed his 51st World Cup victory in fourth place after he was still in a promising second place at halftime.
