He competed in the race in 2009 as part of the Cervélo TestTeam.[14][15] Lloyd has said that the highlights of his cycling career were reaching the Champs-Elysées in the 2010 Tour de France in which he finished 161st in the General Classification and 125th in the Points Classification,[16] and the 2009 Tour of Qatar, which was the first race that he did with the Cervélo TestTeam.
