Didier Rous (born September 18, 1970 in Montaubanmarker, Francemarker) is a former professional road bicycle racer.

He started his professional career with Gan in 1993 before leaving for Festina in 1997, the year in which he won a stage of the Tour de France. In 1998 the Tour and in particular the Festina team were struck by a doping scandal which led to revelations that the team had organised a doping fund under the managemt of Bruno Roussel, the directeur sportif, and the team's doctor, Erik Rykaert. Rous said he had taken the blood enhancer, EPO.

In 2000 he joined a new team, Bonjour, sponsored by a newspaper chain and managed by the former rider Jean-René Bernaudeau. He stayed with Bernaudeau as the team's sponsors changed and ride under its new sponsor, Brioches La Boulangère (2003-2004) and then Bouygues Telecom (2005).

Rous said on 11 June 2007 that he was stopping racing because of health problems and joined the management of the Bouygues Telecom team.
