Matthew Lloyd (born 24 May 1983) is an Australian professional road bicycle racer, who last rode for UCI ProTour team Lampre-Merida. 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.
Lloyd was released by Omega Pharma-Lotto in April 2011 for "behavioural reasons" rather than a drug problem.
Lloyd signed a two-year deal with Lampre-ISD in November 2011.
