The UCI Women's Road Cycling World Cup began in 1998 by the Union Cycliste Internationale as a season-long road bicycle competition for women. This competition consists of a series (which has varied from 6 to 12 events) of races linked together, not only by a common designation, but also by a yearly overall points competition.
Each World Cup race is a one-day event, with courses ranging from relatively flat, criterium-like courses, to those which have a lot of climbing, as exemplified by La Flèche Wallonne Féminine which ends on the famed Mur de Huy climb with several sections exceeding 15% grades.
A teams classification was added in 2006.
