On this competition Tepeš jumped the Slovenian national record with 235.5 meters. He was the record holder for only a short period of time. He won individual in a Grand Prix competition in Almaty, Kazakhstan for the second time in his career.[2]

The 2012–13 is the far most successful World Cup season in his career yet. In Vikersund he set his personal best jump with 237 meters.[3] First time in his career went on an individual podium with 3rd place in Harrachov ski flying event where he fell at hill record, official 220 meters[4] long, as measuring system was set no further than this distance (unofficially they handmeasured him 225 meters). He won three Team events with Slovenia. At last he won his first career individual world cup event in Planica.[5]
