- John Degenkolb (Trek-Segafredo) has abandoned the Vuelta a Espana: "To be honest I am really frustrated. I started the season well with a victory in Dubai and a lot of top 10 places at the spring classics, but after that, it just never went like I hoped and expected for. Anyway, health comes first now and the season is not over yet so I don’t want to take risks now. So, I will go home, recover and focus on the rest of the season."

- Matteo Trentin (Quick-Step Floors) had this to say after his Stage 4 victory: "We took responsibility again today and did the bulk of the work for most of the stage. Tim chased down the breakaway, then Bob and Niki protected me, while Julian and Yves brought me in a great position. I knew the last kilometer was a technical one, with several tight bends, but wasn’t worried at all about it, as I had Yves with me, who showed two days ago how good he is in such a situation. I am really happy I could repay all my teammates for their hard work and come out on top here."

- News: Nibali wins stage 3 in Andorra. (Cyclingnews) - Italian beats GC rivals, Froome moves into race lead.

- Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) won Stage 3 ahead of David de la Cruz and Chris Froome.  Chris Froome (Team Sky) is new overall leader.

- Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) following his Stage 3 victory: "We're only on the third day. It wasn't easy to be ready for climbs and to win such a stage contesting the sprint.  I had some difficulties on the last ascent, where my rivals keep a high tempo. I was behind and I must recover on the downhill to close the gap to the front small group of riders and try my chance to take the win.  I knew that it was difficult to win, because there were very fast riders and today’s stage was really demanding due to high temperature too."

- Yves Lampaert (Quick-Step Floors) following his victory in Stage 2: "Our ideal scenario was to create an echelon long before the finish, but in case this didn’t happen, then we had a back-up plan: to try again in the last kilometers. We wanted to deliver Matteo in a perfect position to sprint for the win, but once we splintered the peloton and opened a gap in the final kilometer, we improvised a bit, as he told me to go, and that’s what I did. I am extremely happy our plan worked to perfection."

- Yves Lampaert (Quick-Step Floors) won Stage 2 and is new overall leader.

- BMC Racing won the Stage 1 Team Time Trial, putting Rohan Dennis into the leader jersey as first overall leader.

- Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) had this to say following the team's victory in the Stage 1 TTT: "Everything went to plan today, and we executed our TTT perfectly. I think we were still a little bit nervous when Team Sky came in and I thought that we had maybe lost it on the line, but in the end, we came out as the strongest team.  It was a hard course. It wasn't just a straightforward time trial. It was technical at the start, and we had to tactically figure out if it was better to finish at the top of the hill with nine riders or if we drop a few guys. The course tested everything: strength, technique, and speed. You had to be the best in every aspect, and we showed our true power today."

- News: Movistar name Soler and Betancur in youthful Vuelta a Espana line-up. (Cyclingnews) - Four Grand Tour debutants in absence of Quintana and injured Valverde.

- Juanma Garate (Cannondale-Drapac): "The Vuelta this year has a team time trial, one individual time trial, four stages that will most likely end in a bunch sprint, six hilly stages and nine uphill finals.  The design of this year’s Vuelta opens a lot of possibilities for aggressive teams and riders.  The average age in our team is 27 years. It’s probably not the youngest team at the start, but I think we do bring the team with the most rookies.  Not only do we have four riders racing their first Grand Tour, but we have another two riders who have only ever done one Grand Tour in their careers."

- Team Sky for the 2017 Vuelta a Espana: Chris Froome, Christian Knees, David Lopez, Gianni Moscon, Wout Poels, Salvatore Puccio, Mikel Nieve, Diego Rosa, Ian Stannard.

- Chris Froome (Team Sky): "It certainly feels as if I’ve got unfinished business with this race. I’ve finished second three times now, but I’ve got a good feeling about this year’s Vuelta. It feels like we’re on much more of a mission this year, and aiming for the Tour/Vuelta double this season has been a huge motivation."

- Marc Reef (Team Sunweb directeur sportif): "We have a good combination of experienced riders and young talents with huge strength and potential on our line-up. We want our younger riders to see what it takes to complete a three week race and give them the opportunity to learn from our more experienced Grand Tour riders, without any form of pressure."

- Team Sunweb roster for the Vuelta a Espana: Søren Kragh Andersen (DEN), Warren Barguil (FRA), Johannes Fröhlinger (GER), Chad Haga (USA), Chris Hamilton (AUS), Lennard Hofstede (NED), Lennard Kämna (GER), Wilco Kelderman (NED), Sam Oomen (NED).
