Team Sky's Chris Froome says that stage 15 over the Grand Colombier has been a bit underestimated, but should be an extremely tough day for those wanting to win the Tour de France.

Froome leads the overall by 1-47 on Dutchman Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) and 2-45 on Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange). The 15th stage to Culoz, a stage perhaps overlooked because it is neither in the Pyrenees nor the Alps, includes 4080 metres of climbing over its 160 kilometres from Bourg-en-Bresse.
