Matteo Trentin (Quick-Step Floors), winner of stage 4 of La Vuelta 2017: “I was really looking for a victory because I'm going strong in this last part of the season. After the crash that took me out of the Tour de France, I was just thinking about coming here and winning a stage at La Vuelta. Two days ago, we did a really smart job to get the victory with Yves Lampaert. Today we decided it was my time. The guys were amazing. We got a bit of help at the beginning but when things went bananas we held it together with everyone pulling. I'm really part to do this (being part of the 100 riders with stage victories on 3 Grand Tours) with Quick-Step. Next year I'm going to change team but I've won at the Giro, the Tour and now La Vuelta with them so I'm really proud with all these results.

Diego Rubio (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA), most aggressive rider: “That's just how it is. We gave it our best and we couldn't do more. It was really hard. There was a lot of headwind, we spent many kilometres in the break, and we were only two riders for the last 60km. We made it hard for the peloton and we can't ask much more to two riders on their own. We always have to keep hoping and fighting until the end. In the climb, we went full gas with Rossetto and we managed to win some time. We...
