Team Sky's Tour de France dominance with yellow jersey Chris Froome "has to be discouraging" for rivals with four mountain stages to race after Tuesday's rest in Bern, Switzerland.

Froome leads with 1-47 minutes over Dutchman Bauke Mollema (Trek-Segafredo) and 2-45 over Brit Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange) with some of the hardest days to come. So far, though, Sky showed no weakness and in fact, had numbers for the summit finishes to Arcalís and Mont Ventoux.
