Wiggins' visor in the TT ?

anyone know what happened to Wiggins' visor in the TT yesterday ? I am watching footage and noticed his Kask helmet at the start had one on. But in the end, he had no visor ? Fell off ? Did he physically remove it ? and managed to stay on his bike and post the best time ? wow ???

he scratched it off, either too hot or the light is too dim, sometimes when the sweat drip into your eyes you want some wind to get them off

Apparently he took it off on the climb. I think that's 'cos it was a really hot day, not a weight-saving thing.

My theory is that he was going so fast that the bug splatter was impeding his vision. Next TT, he'll have wiper blades.

Btw it's interesting to see that he's using mechanical shifters instead of electronic. I guess it's because the electronic bar-end shifters are counted as part of the bar extensions while the mechanic aren't so he can get a better position using the mechanical shifters.

Lars Bak complained a little about his position on the bike because he had to change it do to riding with electronic shifters. Why is it that UCI always chose to enforce their technical crap at the TdF for the first time of the year instead of from seasons start so that people can adjust their set up in the build-up period of the season?

They've been enforcing the reduced reach with electronic shifters for two seasons now.
