Host Homes Needed for Elite Athletes for Upcoming Mundelein Grand Prix

The Mundelein Grand Prix Intelligentsia Cup cycling event is RACING back to Mundelein on July 25! The Intelligentsia Cup is a 10-day race series (July 22-31) in and around Chicagoland. It is the largest road race series in the country that attracts elite athletes from across the nation and around the world! 

Currently, they are seeking host homes for some of these elite athletes. Based on feedback from other host families, these elite cyclists are always great guests and often long-term friendships form.

Host housing has been a long-time staple of bicycle racing and the requirements are rather basic, yet the housing assistance is a great help to the athletes.

Host Home Requirements :

- A bed or air bed for each cyclist, a bathroom, and shower

- A kitchen to prepare meals with refrigerator space

- A washer and dryer

- Secure place to store bikes

You are not expected to cook or provide transportation for these athletes, and the cyclists will respect the health guidelines of your home.

Please contact the Intelli Cup’s host housing coordinator, Elle Ullum, at if you are interested in this opportunity to meet some interesting and talented cyclists. Also, visit Host Housing to learn more!

Grand Prix Bike Race, Monday, July 25, 2022


The Mundelein Grand Prix is a professional and amateur bicycle race as part of the nationally-renowned Intelligentsia Cup race series. Races are held in a "criterium" format, meaning that racers will compete together on a short circuit racecourse in Downtown Mundelein and complete as many laps as possible within the allotted time. Once one race finishes, another begins shortly thereafter. There will be almost nonstop racing from 10AM to 8PM. With tight turns and fast straightaways, races are always a thrilling spectacle! But this day is more than just about bike races: a beer garden, children's games, a community ride, live music, art activities, and more will make the Mundelein Grand Prix an event the whole community can enjoy.  More Information
