Vattenfall Cyclassics Hamburg 2013

From Guy Vermeiren (Gazet van Antwerpen)
Accreditation procedure: smooth and fast. Picking up the credentials the evening before the race was difficult. No signs in the centre of Hamburg. No parking space for people who wanted to go to the pressroom.
Raceday: it was nearly impossible to reach the press centre on Sunday. Basicly all the roads were blocked for people who wanted to go to the start later than… 8AM. Again: no parking space available for journalists
Pressroom: internet free of charge and okay, food and drinks available. Walking distance from finish to pressroom. The main problem was that EVERYBODY had to leave the pressroom at 7PM. Writing while workers are busy breaking up the facilities is very hard to do.
