If you were a Medieval knight, one of the best ways to sort out problems was by hitting people with a pike.  Doing so in a tourney, helped to sharpen the skills for warfare.

The knights’ features are obscured by the helmets.  Unfortunate for photography but probably a good thing for their faces.The Portaloos are not a period detail.

I had my aperture wide open as usual, increasing my shutter speed.  This is a necessity if you want to take action shots in the murk of the English sun but by a happy coincidence, the result of throwing the background out of focus helps to separate the knight from the crowd.  Where would sports photography be if optical physics worked differently?
