Matthew Lloyd (born 24 May 1983) is an Australian professional road bicycle racer, who rides for the Jelly Belly team.[2] Lloyd is the first Australian cyclist to win a King of the Mountains competition in a grand tour. He turned professional in 2007 with the Predictor-Lotto team, after riding for the SouthAustralia.com/AIS team. He was an Australian Institute of Sport scholarship holder.[3]

Lloyd was released by Omega Pharma-Lotto in April 2011 for "behavioural reasons" rather than a drug problem.[4]

Lloyd signed a two-year deal with Lampre-ISD in November 2011.[5]
