After winning the winter title this spring, Armin
Bauer has also secured the summer national titel
in a joint competition with the Slovenian team in
Planica and Tarvisio this past weekend.
In the ski jumping part on the new HS139 hill in
Planica, Samuel Costa had been the best of the Italian
starters ahead of Armin Bauer. During the race on
the bike track in Tarvisio, the two switched positions
and Alessandro Pittin was able to make up two places
from his intermediate fifth and finished third.
But actually it was Slovenian shooting star Marjan
Jelenko who, already being in the lead after the
jumping part, won the joint competition with a 1,35
lead over Italian champion Bauer. Gasper Berlot
and Mitja Oranic finish third and fourth in the
joint ranking list before Costa and Pittin came
in as the next Italian starters.
