Marion Rousse, a jealousy admitted live

Marion Rousse’s fame among cycling enthusiasts is no longer in doubt. A consultant for France Télévisions, Julian Alaphilippe’s partner even arouses a few little jealousies.

This year again, Marion Rousse is commentating on the Tour de France. For this 111th edition, the consultant of France Televisions is once again associated with Laurent Jalabert and Alexandre Pasteur in the cabin, while Thomas Voeckler is present on one of the motorcycles that follows the peloton throughout its course. The opportunity for the one who is also the coach of the French team, to meet the public and see how much they are fans of a certain Marion Rousse.

A real darling of cycling lovers, the one who became even more famous when she became Julian Alaphilippe’s partner, is thus entitled to many messages on the roadsides. A fact that Thomas Voeckler wanted to highlight with mischief and humor this Tuesday. While he was speaking live during the tenth stage of the Tour linking Orléans to Saint-Amand-Montrond (Julian Alaphilippe’s birthplace), the former yellow jersey wearer referred to the fans of the young mother.

“We can’t compete with Marion”

Speaking about the public and the notoriety he can still have with them when he rides a motorbike, Thomas Voeckler added: ” We are always encouraged. So, we can’t compete with Marion. She has signs every fifty meters. Between the marriage proposals, the ‘Marion you are the best’and so on, and so on. If our cameramen didn’t show you even a tenth of the panels, Franck Ferrand could go home, we wouldn’t have any more room for churches. »

This amusing little fit of jealousy in the form of a factual observation then provoked general hilarity among the commentators, including Marion Rousse, who was surely delighted with this ever-increasing notoriety on the roads of the Tour de France.
