Britain?s Daniel Lloyd was busy packing his bags on Tuesday after getting a late call up from his Cervelo team to ride the Giro d?Italia.

Lloyd was named as first reserve by the team after suffering with a bronchial virus in mid-April. However New Zealand?s Hayden Roulston has pulled out of the team with an ankle problem, meaning Lloyd will ride the first three-week major Tour of his career.
