What is the World Cup?

The road World Cup is a series of 13 events in 2006 (growing from 11 in 2005, 9 in 2004 and 8 in 2003). The events take place throughout the season in different locations. Each World Cup event is a single day road race (or team time trial) and the winner and top 20 placed riders at each event are awarded points towards the overall series. The leader in the competition is identified by her white and blue leader's jersey (right). Frequently, the organisers of the an individual World Cup round will provide a 3 or 4 day stage race for competitors in the week before the World Cup event.

Nicole Cooke won the 2006 competition, taking enough points from the first 10 rounds to ensure victory without even having to ride the final round in Germany. She was in Nurnberg, riding with her team, Univega and they took the team prize in the final round. 

The 2005 competition was won by Australian, Oenone Wood, who rides for Équipe Nürnberger, which is based in Germany. Wood also won the competition in 2004.
