- Start List here.

- Richie Porte (BMC Racing) following Stage 8: "That was such a nervous and stressful stage. It looked like today went without any problems but that's thanks to my fantastic team here. BMC Racing Team has been great all week and today was another impressive display from them to put me in a good position in the hectic finish. It was one of those days where you are just happy to get it over and done with.  The race has gone really well so far but it's not over until it's over. Nairo Quintana had a fantastic day yesterday and I think he could easily have another good day tomorrow, likewise with Wilco Kelderman."

- Results: Nairo Quintana wins stage 7. (Cyclingnews) - Porte loses time but keeps yellow jersey.

- Nairo Quintana (Movistar) won Stage 7.  Richie Porte (BMC Racing) retained the overall race lead.

- Nairo Quintana (Movistar Team) following his Stage 7 victory: "I wanted to see what my real form was, and fortunately, I'm feeling great at the moment! The team's work was really good, with everyone taking efforts from the very beginning of the stage and as far as they could. We put Bennati to push at the front of the bunch on the flat before the climb, trying to keep the breakaway close and taking advantage from Víctor's position to bridge back and get further. De la Parte was fundamental up there on the flat between the climbs, pushing as much as he could for as long as possible. And in the end, it was my task - Mikel was also trying to attack the GC group and destroy the pace by BMC, just like I asked him to do."

- Results: Kragh Andersen wins stage 6. (Cyclingnews) - Richie Porte extends overall lead in Gommiswald.

- Søren Kragh Andersen (Team Sunweb) won Stage 6.  Richie Porte (BMC Racing) remains overall leader.

- Søren Kragh Andersen (Team Sunweb) following his Stage 6 victory: "Today was a really special day and I'm super happy with the win. To pay back my team for giving me the chance is a really nice feeling. Our coach from the car told me to do my thing and trust my instinct and when the last attack went I decided to go for it. This win is a relief, it was a really long sprint for me and I managed to stay in front. I've had a lot of opportunities in the past but it never really worked out so I'm super happy that I've finally taken a WorldTour win here."

- Results: Ulissi wins stage 5. (Cyclingnews) - Richie Porte moves into the overall lead in Leukerbad.

- Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates) won Stage 5.  Richie Porte (BMC Racing) is new leader in the general classification.

- Richie Porte (BMC Racing) following Stage 5: "The team was absolutely superb. They were fantastic all day. It was a hectic start and we covered the first 100km super quick and I don't think it was an easy day for anyone. It may not have looked really hard in the final there but we went hard. All of the guys did their part today and I am so happy to have the jersey and keep it in the team. I think when you have such a hard start it's not easy to get going and it wasn't an easy day. So, let's see what the peloton has in store for us tomorrow."

- Diego Ulissi (UAE Team Emirates) following his Stage 5 victory: "Today’s win carries much weight, the Tour de Suisse is a prestigious race and it makes me proud to win here.  I was able to come out of the Giro d’Italia with good condition, I remained concentrated knowing that in Switzerland I’d have stages suited to my characteristics. The stage today was one of those, and I pulled it off.  The race was hard, in the end, I was worried about not catching Mikel Landa, who shot out quite early, but luckily, I closed in on him and kept my speed."

- Results: Juul Jensen wins stage 4. (Cyclingnews) - Küng keeps overall lead in rain-soaked Gstaad.

- Christopher Juul Jensen (Mitchelton-Scott) won Stage 4.  Stefan Kung (BMC) remains leader on G.C.

- Chris Juul-Jensen (Mitchelton-Scott) following his Stage 4 victory: "I'm super happy, we didn't expect to stay away on a day like today but when we had two minutes at the bottom of the climb, then suddenly the break started to believe it was actually possible. I am over the moon.  Coming out of a great Giro with Mitchelton-SCOTT, I felt I had good form and when he (Peters) attacked I kept him at a relatively close distance and I could see that he was maybe taking the corners slightly slower then I was. I was closing the gap and decided to make the most of it before it was too late.  It was a long three kilometres on the airfield here but it is a fantastic feeling. Especially here, being in Switzerland with the king of Switzerland on the team, I am happy to pull out a good result."

- Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) won Stage 3.  Stefan Kung (BMC) retained the overall race lead.

- Race leader Stefan Küng (BMC Racing) following Stage 3: "I think some teams were caught behind yesterday and that resulted in a bit more nervousness in terms of positioning before the climbs so, it [the race] started as soon as we hit the local laps. But, our team was really up there and chapeau to Michi [Schär] and Dema [De Marchi], they did an amazing job again today. As soon as Dema pulled off just before the climb, we kind of lost track of each other but in the end, we were up there and present. In a nutshell, it was pretty slow, the last climb was pretty fast which made a selection. It was kind of the same story as yesterday."

- Sonny Colbrelli (Bahrain-Merida) following his Stage 3 victory: "It’s a fantastic day. It’s a very important victory for me and for the team. Thanks to my teammates, that did an amazing work in the final. Padun Gasparotto, the Izagirre brothers, everybody.  I went from a long way out in the sprint, a long, long way out so that I could anticipate strong sprinters like Gaviria and Sagan. As I did at Paris-Nice last year.  Yesterday I had a bad day and today I wanted to bounce back and I succeeded thanks to my teammates’ help too. I’m really happy."

- Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) following his victory on Stage 2: "I’m very happy about this, and have to thank all my BORA-hansgrohe teammates for their support today. They trust me enough to work so hard through the day and it means I can go for the win. I was thinking about the team’s tactics and in the end it worked out exactly as we’d planned. I’m very happy to have won the stage. All my preparation has been good and I’m feeling a bit more relaxed about the rest of the race now. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into these wins behind the scenes. My legs aren’t at their best yet and I still have some work to do before the Tour de France, but I’m looking forward to the rest of the race."

- Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) following the Stage 1 Team Time Trial: "I think we had a good start to the Tour de Suisse and I'm happy with the result we achieved. This was my first race day after an intense training period at high altitude in the US and I feel in good shape. I'm not at 100% right now but it's just the beginning. We have another eight stages ahead."

- Race leader Stefan Kung (BMC Racing) following the team's victory in the Stage 1 TTT: "The guys were fantastic. We showed once more why we are one of the best, if not the best, team in this discipline in the world. We took it really seriously. We had a good look at the parcours two days ago and this morning and everyone was fully focussed. Everyone was ready for the challenge and with such a good team in the background it set the stage for us. It was set up to win today and we can be really proud of our performance today."
