Lloyd was born on August 11th, 1980 in Christchurch Dorset. He began cycling at the age of 12 and became more serious about it after joining his first race club during high school.
In 1999, Lloyd joined British Cycling’s Talent Team program to further develop his racing skillset.
It wasn’t until 2003 that he won the prologue stage of Paris-Nice as a member of the Crédit Agricole team, earning him the yellow jersey for only one day.
Held out from competing with an illness for most of the 2004 season, Lloyd eventually had surgery to remove a large tumor on his lung which caused him breathing problems while riding.
The surgery helped give Lloyd increased stamina and endurance allowing him to compete better than ever before: he would go on to win the 2006 edition of Tro-Bro Léon, a race held in Brittany.
In 2007, Lloyd won his first stage at Paris–Corrèze and claimed victory as the winner of the Great Britain National Road Race Championships later that year.
He was able to capture a silver medal during the 2008 Beijing Olympics after being outsprinted by Spaniard Isaac Gálvez Moreno with only 50 meters left between them.
Lloyd retired from competitive cycling in 2012 due to health issues that prevented him from riding professionally but remained involved with British Cycling’s coaching program until 2014 when he became an announcer for Global Cycling Network (GCN).
Lloyd married his wife, Emma in 2007 and the couple has two children together.
In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf and spending time with his family.
Lloyd’s net worth is estimated to be around $10 million as of 2021. This is largely due to his successful cycling career which earned him a variety of bonuses and sponsorships over the years.
Lloyd was even able to purchase a home in Surrey for £650,000 in 2011 (approximately $850,000 at the time).
Despite no longer being an active cyclist, Lloyd has managed to keep a steady income through announcing jobs with GCN as well as various companies.
Lloyd is a big fan of the French professional football club, Paris Saint-Germain, and has been seen attending matches in person as well as being interviewed by local media outlets about his favorite team.
In 2016, Lloyd became an ambassador for British Cycling’s “Choose Cyclisme” campaign to help promote cycling safety after becoming one of many cyclists killed on roads around Great Britain over the past few years.
This led him to meet with Prime Minister David Cameron who agreed that something needed to be done before more lives were lost due to reckless driving amongst other things.
You can follow Daniel Lloyd on both Instagram and Twitter. He has 118,000 followers on Instagram and more than 99,000 followers on Twitter.
As one of the most well-known professional cyclists in the world, it’s no secret that Lloyd was able to build a great career after biking. Time will tell how quickly the former cyclist will continue to grow his empire.
