“A sensitive subject”: Marion Rousse feared the worst with Alaphilippe

Published on July 2, 2024 at 10:35 a.m.

Passionate about sports, cinema and television (on screen and behind) since his childhood, Bernard has been a journalist for 10 Sport since 2018. More skilled with a keyboard in his hand than with a ball at his feet, he decides to mainly cover a sport that is both adored, criticized and hated (football) and a sport that is not one (wrestling).

At the microphone for this 2024 Tour de France, Marion Rousse will not comment on the performances of her companion Julian Alaphilippe this year, the latter having skipped the Grande Boucle in order to focus on the Paris Olympic Games. This will avoid a new mishap for the France Télévisions consultant, who had a big scare in 2022.

If Julian Alaphilippe does not participate in the 2024 edition of the Tour de France in order to focus on the Paris OlympicsHis wife Marion Rousseshe is there to comment on the event for France Televisions. A role that is not always easy, especially on April 24, 2022, when the runner of the Quick-Step was injured in a major mass fall during the Liège-Bastogne-Liège race. Interviewed by France Blue, Marion Rousse returns to this fear on the microphone.

“The only time I lost my composure”

« Risks are unfortunately part of a cyclist’s life. I myself have had some big falls! Afterwards, it’s true that you put your finger on a sensitive subject, the only time I lost my composure “, she admits regarding the accidentAlaphilippe two years ago, 60 kilometers from the finish of Liège-Bastogne-Liège, in remarks reported by Marie-France.

“You find yourself facing people, naked”

« This is where it starts to get complicated because you don’t know what’s going on, you lose your composure. You say to yourself ‘but what am I going through?’, you find yourself in front of people, naked. You don’t know what’s going on and everyone is panicking.she remembered. I was reassured, not right away, because I saw the team doctor five or ten minutes after the fall, who was in tears and I said to myself: ‘is it that serious?’ ». Julian Alaphillipe had then suffered a pneumothorax, two broken ribs and a broken shoulder blade.
