- Rafal Majka (Bora-Hansgrohe) following Stage 3: "I feel that my form is good. I want to particularly thank Pawel for his help on the last climb, and all my teammates who helped me earlier in the race to always be in a good position. We still have a few stages left with long climbs, and we’ll continue to fight for good results."

- Christian Poemer, Sports Director, Bora-Hansgrohe after Stage 3: "Today went well for us. We tried to motivate the sprinters in the team to assist the climbers as long as possible. Andreas Schillinger did a particularly good job today, however, Rüdiger Selig suffered from respiratory problems and unfortunately had to abandon the race. In the end, it was a battle between the strongest riders in the race, and Rafal was right up there with them. It is a bit difficult to fight for stage victories with only two climbers in the team here. However, there are still stages with long climbs to come, and we’ll continue to pursue our main objective of a stage win."

Notes from the 2018 Tour of the Alps

- Videos: Tour of the Alps Videos. See previous years.

- Ben O'Connor (Team Dimension Data) following Stage 5: "Today was another day of tough racing, around the World Champs course. Sky took the race on initially but then it was Astana who really forced the pace on the 2nd time up the climb and blew the race to pieces. I was feeling really good and was ready try something similar to the other day, when I won, but I had a really untimely puncture on the last climb. I had a big chase and got back to Chris Froome and the onus was on him to ride. It was only down at the bottom of the descent were it all regrouped.  The team was really helpful too, getting me into position before getting onto the circuit, which was crucial. I didn't have to spend any unnecessary energy and then it was down to my legs on the circuit.  I got a few seconds back over some of our rivals which allowed me to move up a spot on GC. Finishing in 7th is absolutely amazing and winning the white jersey, it was something I looked at but I wasn't absolutely sure I could do it. So, this week has given me a massive confidence boost, knowing I can be up there on GC and ride with the best guys in the world. The way the team has helped me develop is something I think no other team would have allowed me to do, so a big thank you to the team."

Ben has shown great form already in Catalunya and Louis is also coming into his form now, so we should have a great 5 days of aggressive racing coming up from our side."
