Maybe Movistar rides for the team classification!?
I think this is correct, they always seem to do it.
Just in case this isn't a silly joke: They had three riders on the break, including to really good climbers. If they were riding for the team classification, they'd obviously just let it go.

The only reason they'd drop back Verona is to boost a Landa attack. The only reason they would work (over) Amador just now is because they going for the stage win with Quintana, because Landa wasn't up for an all out attack.

If they wanted the team classification this was evidently not the way to do it. Sorry if I messed up a joke, but I feel some people might actually believe this.
This wasn't a joke!

I think the problem is they try all three a bit at the same time and don't commit themselves to one thing fully.

Edith says now they succeed actually!
