Surprise winner Jakub Wolny secured victory in the opening round of this year's Summer Grand Prix with two excellent jumps (123.5 and 126.5 meters) and 261.2 points. The Pole defeated Austria's Jan Hörl, who was leading after the first round, who jumped close to second place with 260.8 points, followed by Dawid Kubacki who was 3.5 points behind the winner.
Best German was Markus Eisenbichler in 5th place. The athlete from Siegsdorf was still in second place after the first round but unfortunately dropped back in the final round. With Karl Geiger on rank six and Constantin Schmid on rank seven three DSV eagles jumped into the top 10.

He relegated Austria's Jan Hörl to second place and Slovenia's Anze Lanisek to third place.
