Message from Marion Rousse

The native of Saint-Amand-Montrond had another good news to celebrate this weekend. Saturday marked his 30th birthday.

The former French champion has obviously not forgotten his spouse. “Hello 30”she notably wrote on Instagram with several emojis showing her love for the QuickStep runner.

Julian Alaphilippe also split for the occasion with a message on social networks. “30 years old, ate well. After three weeks of altitude training, I’m still here. Thank you all for your messages “he wrote.

Still many good years ahead of him…

” Still there “, Julian Alaphilippe can be optimistic for the rest of his career. If at 23 years old, Tadej Pogacar is a phenomenon of precocity, the Frenchman still has good years ahead of him. Alejandro Valverde’s longevity is obviously the best example of this. And even reading the winners of the Tour de France can encourage optimism. Many winners of the Grande Boucle have indeed won by more than 30 points. And without going back to Firmin Lambot and Henri Pélissier, who won at 36 and 34 a century ago, Cadel Evans, in 2011, and Carlos Sastre, in 2008, won at 34 and 33.
