Host Housing

We are pleased to again offer host housing to Domestic Elite Men’s and Women’s Road Teams and Youth Teams. We have many local families who have participated in the Host Housing program for several years and look forward to having you in their homes again this year. In the past we have had some teams who reserved host housing, but did not show. As you can imagine, this was a big disappointment for the host family. Once you have been assigned housing, please communicate with the family as much as possible to let them know your travel plans and any special needs you might have. They are anxious to show you true “Southern Hospitality!”

Please contact our volunteer (and corporate sponsor) Terry Phillis, MD to schedule your host housing at

Special note on Host Housing for Pro teams: Full teams of 6 riders will be given priority when assigning host housing. Please contact Terry Phillis at for Host Housing assignments.


Food will be available for purchase from 11am to 8pm at the festival at more than 12 restaurants serving from tents in the street. UCI Pro Road Teams (Men and Women) will have a complimentary meal after their races at Classic on Noble restaurant – the same location as Registration and Payout.

Team Parking

The Sunny King Criterium will again offer a Team Parking area very near the Start/Finish. This area is reserved for Pro 1-2 teams only, please. There will be ample room for you to park a maximum of two vehicles and have room to set up trainers, etc.
