- Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hansgrohe) following his win on Stage 5: "The guys worked hard to support me the whole day, and in the end Rudi Selig brought me into the perfect position in the last 200m. I am very thankful for all the hard work of my teammates. It was a real goal of ours to win today and we achieved this. The race has not been easy and it was difficult for me to stay within the time limit on the penultimate stage. So it is nice to see that our hard work paid off."

- News: Bernal lights up Romandie but Roglic holds firm.  (Cyclingnews) - 'I gave my best and Primoz Roglic is a very good rider' says Team Sky leader.

- News: Fuglsang: I wasn't the strongest, but I played my tactics.  (Cyclingnews) - 'It's the second last day of the first part of the season for me' says Romandie queen stage winner.

- News: Fuglsang wins Tour de Romandie queen stage.  (Cyclingnews) - Roglic keeps overall lead with one stage remaining.

- Steffen Radochla, Bora-Hansgrohe Sport Director following Stage 4: "The plan was to attack before the last climb. After the attack that Pawel Poljanski and Emanuel Buchmann put in on the slopes of the penultimate climb, Emanuel was able to successfully bridge to the leading group. At the base of the last climb, the escapees had about a one minute advantage. The first part of the climb was not too steep and didn’t lead to any significant difficulties. However, then Team Sky took over the bulk of the pace making in the main field and the advantage of the leaders dropped to 30 seconds. I think that Emanuel put in an excellent performance today."

- News: Dan Martin climbs Tour de Romandie standings after strong time trial ride.  (Cyclingnews) - UAE Team Emirates rider improving in form after misfortune at the Ardennes.

- Egan Bernal (Team Sky) won the Stage 3 Individual Time Trial.  Primoz Roglic (LottoNL-Jumbo) retained the overall race lead.

- Richie Porte (BMC Racing) following the Stage 3 mountain time trial: "I felt good until about 2km to go and then I exploded but I was happy to finish it off like I did. It was a good ride and I think all of us are extra motivated by the passing of Andy Rihs last week so, it's nice to come to his backyard and have a good ride.  Overall, I'm happy. It was a strong ride but normally I don't think I would have blown up as badly as I did in the final couple of kilometers. However, the team has been great behind me especially my coach, David Bailey, so we're motivated to try and finish this race off well."

- Steffen Radochla (Bora-Hansgrohe directeur sportif): "Today the peloton gave the escapees too much of an advantage, and so the break wasn’t able to be brought back. With 50km remaining, the peloton had to crest a difficult climb, and it was at this point that Bahrain-Merida increased the tempo in order to shed the other sprinters. Pascal Ackermann wasn’t able to keep up with the tempo and was therefore unable to be in the mix in Yverdon-les-Bains today."

I didn't know how well I would feel after the weekend but I gave my best and I'm really pleased that I could finish it off with the win.

- Enrico Gasparotto (Bahrain-Merida): "The Romandie is a race that I've always liked. Looking at the race route I think i have a couple of opportunities.

Merhawi Kudus
Amanuel Ghebreigzabhier

- Gino van Oudenhove (Dimension Data directeur sportif): "Tour de Romandie is the next of a hard and high level WT race for us. Nevertheless, this is a great opportunity for some of our riders to step up and take their chances. With a prologue, a climb time trial and a lot of climbing, it fits riders like Steve and Amanuel very well. Also Merhawi showed good riding in the Alps. The amazing riding of Ben in the Alps should give us some good vibes and to the riders to discover the opportunities to show some good results."

My form is good and we are very motivated especially having Richie Porte, the defending champion, on the team. It gives us an extra incentive. The course suits us, and we are ready to fight. We owe it to Andy."

Eros Capecchi (ITA)
Fernando Gaviria Rendon (COL)

- Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors) is back in action following an injury at Tirreno-Adriatico: "Missing all those beautiful races was a blow for me, especially as I was in a good condition. I was sad and frustrated, but this only fueled my motivation to work hard and come back to racing fully recovered. I’ve raced only once before in Switzerland, in my debut season with the pros, but this will be my first time in the Tour de Romandie and I’m excited and eager to join again my teammates and ease back into racing as I start my second half of the season, which I hope to be an injury-free and successful one."
