LocationStadio del Trampolino, Pragelato Plan / Pragelato
Participants48 from 15 countries
FormatLarge hill ski jumping (one jump) and 7.5 kilometres skiing. Pursuit-style cross-country race, with skiers leaving in order of their finish in the ski jumping, so that final placement determined by final placement in cross-country ski race.

The last two World Champions were the surprising American Johnny Spillane in 2003, and Ronny Ackermann in 2005, who had been the best Nordic combined competitor since the 2002 Winter Olympics. But he had struggled in the individual at Torino, finishing only 18th. This event was contested 10 days after the individual competition. The leader after the jump was Georg Hettich, who had won the individual, and led the jumping in that event as well. But in the sprint, the skiing determined the gold and silver medalists. Felix Gottwald had been only 12th after the jump, but posted the fastest ski time to win the gold medal. Norway’s Magnus Moan, 13th on the hill, was second only to Gottwald skiing, and chased him across the line, finishing only 5.4 seconds back to win the silver medal. The medalists in the sprint were the same as they had been in the individual event, but the order was changed. Ackermann and Spillane were never factors, finishing 8th and 10th, respectively.
