Summary

Team Germany had led the jumping on the large hill closely followed by the Austrians and the Norwegians. The relay started with Eric Frenzel in the first leg. After 2 km Austria's Lukas Klapfer and Norway's Magnus Moan joined the leading group. These three countries would fight out the medals which was clear after the second leg, when Björn Kircheisen (GER), Håvard Klemetsen (NOR) and Christoph Bieler (AUT) extended the group's lead to around 1 minute. In the third and the fourth leg none of the leaders could set a deciding attack so the decision came down to the final sprint. It was won by Norway's Jørgen Graabak, who distanced Germany's Fabian Rießle by 0.3 seconds, with the bronze medal going to Austria.
