Tomorrow Frederik and Haakon will be at the race in Norway
Kongelig duell i Birken - Kongehuset - VG

"Birken is a cross-country for the width, but it is clear that there is extra fun that two future heads of State as Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Prince Frederik compete. It is very positive, there are many who look up to them-and it is of great importance that they find it interesting to participate in Birken, said Gunnar Ellevold, General Manager of Birken to VG.*"

BB has more. Kronprins Frederik og kronprins Haakon klar til hidsig fjeld-duel | BILLED-BLADET

Of course Frederik will thrash, wipe out and run in circles around Haakon.

Unless, Frederik in order not to humiliate Haakon, will be merciful and graciously allow Haakon to "do better". But of course we know better, right Polyesco?

BTW Polyesco, it will be a tremendous help to your Frederik if you for ten minutes each hour while the race is on, sit down in a lotus-position (preferably on a dinner table for better energy-projection) and think positive thoughts, while chanting "Um-pa-pa". - No matter where you are. It works, believe me.

I think Frederik is doing just that ...Haakon was in the lead the last time I saw. I don't think this is meant to be a competition between Norway and Denmark. The race is preparation for the even longer Arctic Circle Race in Greenland. And how can a Norwegian lose to a Dane in skiing..? Frederik hardly ever has snow to train on...


Please Polyesco, do provide photos of your energy-projection and the Um-pa-pa! Thanks in advance.


This is in the wrong thread, BTW, it's general news, not current events.
And it's Frederik. Without the c.

.
I hear the reason why Haakon is skiing like a man possessed is that if he loses Frederik is allowed to burn his beloved shoes.

So if any more of you would like to join Polyesco...

BB informs us that despite of your efforts... Haakon, who is younger, taller, know the track and is on home-turf was graciously allowed to complete first of the two.
Kronprins Haakon hurtigere end kronprins Frederik | BILLED-BLADET

However, the snow was heavy so neither gentlemen completed in the allotted time for getting a badge.
Haakon completed in 4h 10m 10s, while Frederik who was in a category for the slightly elderly completed in 5h 5m 5s.

- Polyesco and Eya, I'm not at all pleased with you. Now Haakon gets to wear his one pair of shoes for at least another year.

Lol you guys. I was sending Frederik positive vibes via my sleeping in.

Frederik is too gracious a man to beat the Norwegian crown prince at skiing on their home turf. He let his good friend Haakon come in first.
I mean in the looks and fashion department , Frederik wins by miles

Some pictures

http://www.birkebeiner.no/Global/Bil...20i%20gang.jpg

Haakon stated that Frederik is in better shape,
"It is impressive that Crown Prince Frederik started the race, and he is more fit than me. But this course and these conditions fit enough me better, said Crown Prince Haakon."
Haakon had the clear advantage but I'm sure they both had a great time.
And great preparation for Frederik and the Arctic race

Some very cute pictures of Frederik and Haakon skiing together as children

Oh well, I'm sure our Frogman/Ironman as a Crown Prince just was merciful and let Haakon win now it was in his country...

Thanks for the covering, members.

a few more pictures from Frederik's race in Norway (from newscom).
Even after more than 5 hours, Frederik never loses his beautiful smile

One good thing I've noticed about Frederik when giving an interview after such an event. He doesn't sound like he is out of breath unless he just crossed the finishing line but talks like a normal human being.
Quite a few athletes still sound like they are out of breath when giving an interview several hours afterwards! Come on!

Next Friday, April 29th HRH, The Crown Prince is responsible for the official opening of Danish Rock Museum in Roskilde.

"Danish Rock Museum Ragnarock is a new national, cultural contemporary museum focusing mainly on music and youth culture from the 1950s until today."

article from BB about the upcoming event (with a nice picture of Frederik and Mary at a music festival in 2014)

I'm delighted to learn that Frederik yesterday visited the Danish troops deployed in Iraq. Kongeligt besøg ved danske styrker i Irak

More pics: Cumulus Sites

Along with the Defense Chief Frederik went to a base in western Iraq to visit Danish troops who are training Iraqi forces in preparation for fighting against ISIS. But also the Danish soldiers who provide part of the base security there.
A number of them are from the special forces including some of Frederik old colleagues from the Frogman Corps. But most come from the Royal Lifeguard Regiment.
Some of the instructors are Latvian. Units from the Baltic countries have for many years been deployed with and embedded with Danish forces all over the world.
Australian special forces who are also deployed at the base were also visited by Frederik. I think that's a neat thing to do.

He also visited the Danish-American run field hospital as well as the radar, deployed and manned by the Danish air force.
