- Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) earned the Tour Down Under green jersey: "Last stage at the Tour Down Under and another very hot day. As expected, everything was decided in the bunch sprint. We followed our plan, the guys protected me throughout the race and set me well for the finale. It was a good sprint but not enough to win the stage. It was a good Tour Down Under for me, I scored my first stage victory in this race and I took my first green jersey."

- Daryl Impey following his overall victory at the 2018 Tour Down Under: "It is a relief, you can never say it is done until it’s done.  We had things under control especially with the experienced guys like Mat Hayman, Damien Howson did some awesome work on the front this week so I was in good hands.  Wearing the yellow jersey at the Tour de France was a magical moment but this is very close to that. I worked really hard for this one and especially knowing how important it is to the team and the sponsors. It was a high-pressure race for us, everyone expects a lot so to top it off with a win is very special."

- Daryl Impey (Mitchelton-Scott), who grabbed the leader's jersey following Stage 5: "I can’t believe it, to have the leader's jersey is just fantastic and to be in Australia and in an Australian team and deliver like this after all of their help is just really amazing.  I’ve gone pretty well up Willunga before, maybe not this well, but also I have come here as a bit of a protected rider this year so I think it pays dividends at the end of a race like this. That being said it is always a question mark so when you surprise yourself like today it is special."

- Bora-Hansgrohe's Patxi Vila: "It was an extremely hard day! I think it must have been one of the hardest days I have seen in cycling so far! The heat was painful. The team did a fantastic job and Peter topped it off with a great win. We were chasing it for a couple of days and today we finally got it. I'm really happy with the team spirit and, of course, Peter's performance today was incredible."

- Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) following his Stage 4 victory: "It certainly was one of the hottest days I have ever raced. It was really tough but I felt in good shape. I managed to stay with the leading group on the climb, about 25 riders, and then made the right attack in the right moment. I'm, obviously, happy with my first stage victory at the Tour Down Under and the ochre jersey but I'm also very happy with the performance and result of Jay McCarthy. He's now third overall and tomorrow we will work for him and his GC chances. It is an important race for him, in his home country and our plan here is for him to get the best result in the GC."

- Race leader Caleb Ewan (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 3: "I’m pretty disappointed with that to be honest, my team gave me an absolutely perfect lead out and I stuffed it up in the end. It was a bit of a headwind so I didn’t want to go too early, I waited a little bit too long and Viviani got the jump on me.  I can’t fault the team they were absolutely perfect and they did exactly what I asked them to do. There’s been four different winners over the last four races here so it just shows he depth of the sprint field here at this race."

- Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) following his Stage 3 victory: "Today it was very hot and that only made the stage harder. For that matter, it was very important to keep hydrating and make sure there’s some energy left in the tank for the final 200 meters. The guys did a perfect job today and I want to thank them for helping me get this win. The victory is important not only for the confidence, but also because it shows that I had a good winter preparation."
