SEEFELD, Austria (AP) -- Defending overall champion Eric Frenzel won his second Nordic combined World Cup event in as many days on Saturday after beating Johannes Rydzek for a German 1-2 finish.

Frenzel comfortably held on to his lead after the jumping to win the 10-kilometer cross country in 24 minutes, 49.9 seconds. Rydzek came 26.4 seconds behind after overtaking Norway's Magnus Moan with the finish in sight. Moan was 27.6 back in third.

Frenzel, who also won Friday's sprint competition, is in pole position to become the first winner of a Nordic Combined Triple, a new format which adds the results of all three competitions in one weekend with the overall winner earning double World Cup points.

Sunday's final competition in Seefeld consists of one ski jump and a 15K cross-country race.
