British rider Daniel Lloyd will return to the European ranks next season after signing for Pro-Continental team DFL-Cyclingnews-Litespeed. In 2006, the 26 year-old notched up victories in mountain stages of the Tour of Siam and Qinghai Lake and also placed third at the UK national time trial championships.

"It’s always been part of the plan to get back to racing in Europe," said Lloyd who rode mostly in the Far East for Giant Asia last season. "It’s where all the history is, where all the big races are and where you really need to be if you want to make it."

Lloyd will be racing alongside Belgian team leader Nico Mattan and under the directorship of Eric Vanderaerden, a former winner of Paris-Roubaix. "Nico has been there and done it and Eric is such a big name in cycling I can't wait to learn from them both," said Lloyd. "Hopefully they can bring out the very best in me, especially for the Tour of Britain which is a major late season goal of mine."
