Lloyd will join the Tour de France peloton for the first time

British cyclist Daniel Lloyd will ride in his first Tour de France in July.

The 29-year-old has been called up by his Cervelo team after German rider Heinrich Haussler was forced out of the race with a knee injury.

Lloyd, from Christchurch in Dorset, turned professional in 2003 and was 103rd in May's Giro d'Italia.

He has twice been second in the British road-race championships and joins compatriot Jeremy Hunt and 2008 Tour winner Carlos Sastre in Cervelo's team.

Lloyd's professional victories have been limited to lower-ranking races.

In 2006 he won a stage in China's Tour of Qinghai Lake and the Tour of Siam in Thailand, while in 2008 he was the overall winner of the Spanish race the Vuelta a Extremadura.
