Eric Frenzel's chances of claiming the crystal globe as overall winner of this season's International Ski Federation Nordic Combined World Cup have gone - but Germany's triple Olympic champion can still get his hands on a permanent trophy.
After a hectic World Cup schedule involving five competitions in eight days in March, there is now one more weekend left on the calendar before the 2017-2018 season is history - the World Cup Finals in Schonach.
Tomorrow's individual Gundersen offers the giant Schwarzwaldpokal Trophy as the main reward and 20-year-old Frenzel is seeking a third consecutive win which would mean he keeps the silverware permanently.
The best 30 athletes of the World Cup will then turn to the final challenge of a two-jump, 15 kilometre final individual Gundersen event on Sunday (March 25).
Japan's Akito Watabe has already secured the overall World Cup title - the first to do so from his country since Kenji Ogiwara 24 years ago, and he will also collect the first ever award for best jumper as his total of 1,343 points puts him beyond reach of second-placed Jarl Riiber of Norway who has 930.
Italy's Alessandro Pittin is ready to receive the best skier trophy which he leads with 1,221 points, well clear of Ilkka Herola of Finland on 960.
Meanwhile, local hero Fabian Rießle is looking to finish his season with a flourish after putting three successive event wins together.
