The return to Bergisel saw the return of the original "straight jump" format, and likeable Slovenian Marko Grilc -- a late replacement for an injured Sebastien Toutant -- was a hugely popular winner. He beat fellow heavies Peetu Piroiinen, Andreas Wiig and Iouri Podlatchikov in a shootout final that was as exciting as it gets.
