Day two of the European Jousting Championship involved the second of the two mounted skill at arms competitions. In this second event, the competitors rode in soft kit -- non-armoured clothing that would be appropriate for the time period. At the end of the second day of competition, the same three competitors remain in first, second and third position:

1st place: Knight Ole Bach, Denmark
2nd place: Knight Klas Lundberg, Sweden
3rd place: Toin Peeman, The Netherlands

The remaining days of the tournament will involve the jousting portion of the competition. First the preliminary rounds, then the semi-finals, with the finals and the announcement of the tournament champion being the highlight of the last day of the Bishop's Market Medieval Festival.

You can read updates about this and other events on the Facebook page for Spottrup Castle, and you can read more about the European Championship Jousting Tournament in these previous articles on TJL:
