Garmish-Partenkirchen provided the spectacular backdrop for the second World Cup of the Four Hills tour.

Norway’s Anders Jacobsen got his 2015 off to a flyer with a first-round jump of 135.5 metres to claim the early lead.

Jacobsen, winner of Wednesday’s qualifying event, not only held his nerve but improved on his first jump landing a 136.5 meter second leap for 286 points and victory on the German hill.

He beat the four-time Olympic champion, Simon Ammann of Switzerland, by 6.6 points.

The second place finish for Ammann marked an improvement on his first Four Hills in Oberstdorf, which saw him fail to qualify for the second-round.

Third place went to the Slovenian Peter Prevc mirroring his third spot in Oberstdorf.

Stefan Kraft of Austria leads the tournament after two hills.
