93rd Giro d'Italia - King of the Mountains Maglia Verde
Australian Mathew Lloyd  of Omega Pharma/Lotto and the race for the mountains classification

Jersey: Maglia Verde
27 year old Matthew Lloyd, played a part in the dominance of the Australians in taking 3 of the 4 competitions;  not only a superb solo win on stage 6, but also stood on the final podium in Verona wearing the final the King of the Mountain jersey..

Matt took the jersey on the day of his stage win, and would continue to add points during the following stages only to lose it on stage 19 to Ivan Basso. Undaunted, Lloyd mounted a campaign on the the last mountain stage, confident in his ability to regain the jersey.

The main problem would be getting in a successful breakaway and then grab as many points as possible ahead of the climb of the Gavia. The plan worked perfectly, he topped Forcola di Livigno and Passo di Eira in first position, thus passing Basso in the mountain classification. Passo di Foscagno gave him two more points, but the best was yet to come. The leaders were still ahead at Gavia, where Matthew, 3rd at the top, took enough points to keep the leader's jersey.

Our King of the Mountain of the 2010 Giro spoke of "an amazing feeling" at the top of Gavia, thanking the whole team for their assistance during the previous days. After his Australian champion title and his solo win on stage 6, this was "a very special day" !

Lloyd also won the Combativity trophy for the race 4 points ahead of countryman and Maglia Rossa Cadel Evans and 8 ahead of Jerome Pineau who won the trofeo Fuga.
