- Start List here (provisional).

- Race winner Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following his Stage 15 victory: "It was a bit of instinct. When we came off the descent I saw there was a little gap to a few guys so I asked Jack (Haig) to really push the pace. Then George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo) attacked so it was basically really hard from the very bottom, but I still felt good so I chose my moment to go.  They responded the first time so I gave it everything the second time to get away and finally managed to get away.  I am super happy, I am a bit emotional after today, I really gave it everything.  Yesterday it was extremely difficult and today was the same. I knew everybody would be tired today. I was also really tired but, at the same time, I was very motivated to take as much time as I could on Tom [Dumoulin] before the time trial."

- Race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 14: "I tried to go for the stage. I did my best to catch Chris. I just didn't have enough to get it. But as far as the Maglia Rosa is concerned, it's all good to be second here.  As expected, the gaps aren’t massive. I’m still happy with the gap to Tom [Dumoulin] and the rest of the guys behind. I wasn’t more nervous than the other days, as much as I am sure that Tom is confident ahead of time trials.  I couldn’t follow Froome – he went at a really good moment. He put in a really strong acceleration. It was still a long way to go. I rode my own tempo at that moment – he didn’t get a huge gap. I tried to bridge but that’s ok. I did the best I could."

- Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) following his victory on Stage 13: "This is the nicest and the most emotional victory of the three I got. We rode over some roads I knew from when I started my career and which brought back the memories, so this makes today’s win even more special."

- Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) following his victory on Stage 12: "The way it happened, that I had to go so early and I pulled it off – that’s a nice way to win. It gives me confidence. We still had two guys in front. I didn’t know how much energy they had left, but I didn’t want another stage getting away from me, so I decided to go early. I didn’t know if I could hold it or not. I think I caught some guys by surprise, so it worked to my advantage. The guys did an unbelievable job today, especially in the final kilometres. The victory wouldn’t have happened without them, today was a real team effort."

- Race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following his Stage 11 victory: "I only just won. He (Dumoulin) was chasing me all the way in the final there, it was an extremely difficult final. I am super happy and I would like to have a few easy days now before we get to the mountains.  There was a plan from the beginning. The overall plan from the start in the bus was that we wouldn't chase through the stage because usually there are guys faster than me in a finish like that. We just let it happen and if it came back then I would obviously go for it. We would try to get to the right hander at the front and then I would do what I could from there and that actually worked out perfectly.  As for Tom behind me, I didn't actually know until we crested the climb a little bit towards the top because I was just going full gas and I don't like to look behind, if I did I wasn't paying attention to who it was."

- Race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 10: "You don't really know how the body responds after a rest day, I am very dissapointed for him (Chaves) but hopefully he can bounce back and get a few stage wins.  I was going to go for the bonus seconds, and once I saw Pinot was lining up with the team to do a lead out for the sprint I came behind him and managed to beat him in the sprint. I am going to need every second I can so maybe I need to start sprinting for more than bonus seconds.  We will still approach the race in the same way, there's many more difficult stages to come so we will see how it goes."

- Matej Mohoric (Bahrain-Merida) following his Stage 10 victory: "It’s such a special day.  It was a very long and tough stage. I marked in red it when I saw the route of this year’s Giro.  We planned to go in the break of the day and I tried at the start with a group of seventeen riders, but then when the peloton saw that Esteban Chaves dropped, they began the chase full gas. In the final I still felt great and I asked to Pozzovivo the permission to go. It was quite hard and I was not so confident to be able to win, but I’m tried my best in the final sprint. I did it and I’m super happy for me and for Team BAHRAIN MERIDA. A stage win was one of the aim here at the Giro, together with the General Classification. Now I will focus on helping our leader Domenico in the next days."

- Matej Mohoric (Bahrain-Merida) won Stage 10.  Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) remains overall leader.

- Race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following his Stage 9 victory: "That one was for the boys, the big guys who’ve been riding on the front all day. They’ve had a couple of tough days, always riding on the front on some really long stages. That’s for those guys.  From the beginning of the stage today, we were always thinking that if we kept the break close enough then it might be possible for the stage. Once Astana showed some interest in the stage then I knew it was possible. You never know deep into the final.  It was a very long stage, a hard race in the end, I'm really tired but I'm happy that I managed to win the stage. I said from the beginning that we came here to win."

- News: Carapaz makes history with Giro d'Italia stage win. (Cyclingnews) - Froome has another minor crash on wet final climb.

- Race leader Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) following Stage 8: "We wanted to be in front for the climb. We knew, because of the rain in the final, the hairpins would be very slippery. We wanted to take them in the front. We rode an even tempo. It was a very hard start, so maybe the breakaway didn't have good enough legs to stay away.  Maybe I would have liked to take some bonus seconds in the final, but I got a little boxed in and I couldn't get out to sprint. It's one of those things.  The climb wasn't that difficult. It would have been very hard to make a big difference. Tomorrow is a much more difficult climb. We'll have to see - if I have legs, I'll try. If not, I won't."

- Sam Bennett (Bora-Hansgrohe) following his victory on Stage 7: "It’s a big relief! I was close so many times at the Giro, but today to get the timing right was key. It’s not easy to pass Viviani, but I knew my time would come, even there might be some people who thought it will never come. A big thanks to my team BORA - hansgrohe, all the guys support me really well all the time. Today my plan was to take the wheel from Viviani instead of doing all the lead out for him like the first stages. But I needed patience because I didn’t want to be early again, and then a was closed at some point, but in the end the timing was perfect and everybody could see how fast I am."

I made the break with Jack and I want to say thank you to him - he pulled so much in the breakaway.  In the finale I rode with Simon and I was first, and he claimed the maglia rosa. How unbelievable is that? I think also I'm in the king of the mountains jersey - it's like a dream. Now we go to the mainland, we're super excited, and we will keep on dreaming."

- Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) after Stage 5, his fourth day in the maglia rosa: "It was a nice day on the bike and it was actually quite an easy day in comparison to yesterday. I didn't expect that with the cross-headwind and headwind for most of the day.  There was a little bit of stress now and then but we got to sit back a little bit because other teams wanted to fight for the stage so it was a good day in the end."

- Enrico Battaglin (LottoNL-Jumbo) following his victory on Stage 5: "I’m very, very happy with this win. My last victory was four years ago already, also in the Giro. The fact that I win a stage in the Giro again, means a lot to me and makes it even more beautiful.  I’m very proud to be part of Team LottoNL-Jumbo. The team did a perfect job today. Yesterday it didn’t work out, but today I could reward their confidence in me with a victory. I hope to continue my form for the rest of the Giro. After yesterday I wanted to set something right. I made a small mistake after which I finished third. Today, everything went according to plan. I can’t describe the joy I feel."

- Race leader Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) following Stage 4: "It is great to keep the Maglia Rosa for another day. The team did everything possible to put me in the best position and then I had a couple of guys around me until the final bit. It was a bit stressful but I managed to stay up there. We were hoping that if I was feeling good, I could try and take the sprint but with 250m to go, I knew it wasn't possible, so I just made sure there were no big gaps."

- Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) following Stage 3: "It was very stressful today but I'm glad it's done. It was a hard day., it was long, and we were somewhat lucky that it was a tailwind. The wind was very strong. The last 40 or 50km, when we were chasing the breakaway and especially the last 20km, we were sitting on 70km an hour so we couldn't go any faster. It was super fast and we were lucky that it wasn't a crosswind. Once again, the team did a great job and kept me up the front."

- Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) following his victory on Stage 3: "We stayed together in this crazy final and did a great job. The guys were incredible today and this victory is for them. I can’t tell you how happy I am to have such a fantastic team around me."

- Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) won Stage 3.  Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) retained the pink jersey as overall leader.

- Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) following Stage 2, where he took the pink jersey as race leader: "The plan was to just play it by ear initially. We knew that the second sprint was the one with bonus time and we thought that if it was within grasp, and the breakaway wasn't too far away, we would try. About 40km or 50km from the sprint, they asked me if I wanted to do and I said not really but we did it anyway and I thought that I can't not put 100% into it. The team delivered me exactly where I needed to be for the sprint and all I had to do was go as hard as I could and there was no way I couldn't win it. Then after that, it was about making sure I didn't lose time in the splits in the final. It was massive teamwork."

- Elia Viviani (Quick-Step Floors) won Stage 2.  Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) is new leader in the general classification.

- Team Sunweb coach Marc Reef following Tom Dumoulin's Stage 1 victory: "We had a really good preparation period and the atmosphere in the team is really good, relaxed and focused which helped us to get the win today.

I knew that I felt good but you have to see how things go during the race. We've worked really hard over the last few months, so I'm really happy with the win because it confirms that all of the work has paid off. The course was really good for me; it was really technical and I’m good on the corners. I could go full gas, then recover, then go full gas and recover again. It’s nice to be in the Maglia Rosa but it will be hard to keep it for three weeks. We aren’t planning on defending it every day so we will see what we do with that in the coming days."

After taking the first stage last year, we want to achieve kind of the same things this year, and we will give our best to make this happen. I think, we have a strong line up at this Giro d´Italia, all our riders had a good training period, are in a good shape and the most important thing, we have a special spirit within our team.

- Carlos Betancur (Movistar) pre-race comments: "My preparations for the Giro have been - well, basically riding hard for the last two months! I had to start my season late because the ankle was still hurting from my injuries in the Vuelta, and it's just logical that I've found better legs with every race I've completed. I'm feeling in good condition before this race. I'm really eager to do well in this race - I'm yet to see what my real condition is, but on the psychological side, I feel really strong. The Etna mountain-top finish should be the one letting us know what we can really aim for in this race. My goal before the start, though, is trying to stay with the top contenders."

- News: Giro d'Italia 2018: Five key stages. (Cyclingnews) - Zoncolan, the Rovereto time trial and the Alpine denouement.

- Maximilian Sciandri (BMC Racing directeur sportif): "Our first goal comes on day one with the time trial. It's a technical course, lots of turns, and a good time trial profile for Rohan Dennis. We want to start the Giro d'Italia with a good result there and then move on to our other objectives. In terms of the General Classification, Rohan is motivated to see how far he can go and we plan to take things week by week. There are quite a few uphill finishes in the first ten days so we will know more by then and of course, the time trial from Trento is also a good one for him."

- EF Education First-Drapac for the Giro d'Italia:

Nate Brown (USA)
Hugh Carthy (GBR)
Mitch Docker (AUS)
Joe Dombrowski (USA)

- Mike Woods (EF Education First): "My big goal for this Giro is to get a stage win. I haven’t won a WorldTour race yet, and with 21 stages on tap, I’m hoping I can win one of them."

- Juanma Garate (EF Education First directeur sportif): "The Giro is going to be another step in Mike’s career. After a difficult start for him this season, I think he arrives in Israel exactly as we wanted. If he enjoys every day, if he continues to feel like he is living his dream, I believe this next month will be a really successful one."

- Davide Bramati (Quick-Step Floors directeur sportif): "We’ve had a fantastic first part of the season, but that is history now and we don’t plan to rest on our laurels. The Giro d’Italia is one of the most important races of the season, one where we have always enjoyed tremendous success, winning stages, distinctive jerseys and being up there in the general classification, so it’s only natural to be motivated and ambitious for this fresh challenge. Our roster has a mix of youth and experience, and Elia will be the leader for the next three weeks, but this doesn’t mean we won’t try to be in the mix also in other stages and grab every opportunity we’ll be presented with."

- Luca Guercilena, General Manager Trek-Segafredo: "We are bringing a mixture of experience and young riders to the start, with the main goal to support Gianluca Brambilla in his chase for a great result. I am confident our 8 riders will make each other stronger and motivate one another to perform well as we also hunt for stage wins. I think we can be proud of our line-up for the first Grand Tour of the season."

- Marc Reef (Team Sunweb coach): "We go into the 101st Giro with similar targets to last year; looking for a GC result with Tom.  Lining up as defending champions will bring special dynamics into both the team and the race, and we will be prepared for that. Fighting for a GC result is entirely different in comparison to a stage success focus – everybody in the team needs to be completely focused for three weeks in-a-row, which is very demanding for all. We learned a lot from last year and we will bring this experience into the mix for this edition."
