Initially Bergisel (HS128) welcomed the players with equal, favorable conditions. At the end of the first training session, however, the wind started to spin, which was painfully discovered by Kamil Stoch. He hit unfavorable gusts and gained 107.5 meters from the lowered beam, which gave him only 45th place. Markus Eisenbichler’s situation was quite the opposite. The German blew under the skis and carried him up to 139 meters.
In the second training it was not so good in terms of weather. The wind, though not too strong, was spinning hard. This immediately translated into distance. The competitors from the top of the starting list had problems with reaching even 115 meters.
This group included Andrzej Stękała. The best among Poles in the first training, in the second, he only gained 108 meters and was in a distant position, incl. behind Fatih Arda Ipcioglu, and right in front of Muhammet Irfan Cintimar.

Jakub Wolny landed even closer, reaching 104.5 meters. Thus, in both training sessions he had short jumps, which was not optimistic in the context of the upcoming qualifications. Paweł Wąsek made a decent jump of 117.5 meters.
Piotr Żyła and Kamil Stoch made significant progress. The first of them reached 129 meters and was in the lead for a long time. The second one jumped only 112.5 meters, but he did it again in unfavorable conditions and definitely improved his position in relation to the first training.
In the end, Żyła took a good, seventh place. Kamil Stoch was 19th, and Paweł Wąsek (29th) and Dawid Kubacki (46th) also entered the top “50”. Moreover, Andrzej Stękała was 62nd and Jakub Wolny 63. In the second training, Timi Zajc was the best – the Slovene gained “only” 121.5 meters, but in bad conditions.
