On the morning of Sunday, October, 7, 2012, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark participated in the 2012 Merida MTB Marathon.
“My time was 5 hours and 29 minutes, slightly better than last year when I finished at 5 hours and 30 minutes. The course went fine, except that I had a single pucker along the way. It was a really good race, with a better than normal startup procedure. The entire organizational work was perfect and I give great credit to all the volunteers for their fantastic job.”
