And the Germans got to keep the trophy for another year as the Swedes who had been in the lead for much of the competition suffered an injury during the dismounted stage and ended up last which cost the Wartofta company critical points. (Swedish regiments still name their companies according to the 1682 organisation which named each company according to which Hundred it was recruited from)
