(Whiteboard: [serversniff][country-all][sitewait])

Cyclingnews.com is using server side user agent detection to determine if a user is browsing using a desktop or mobile client. Unfortunately the site is not properly detecting the user agent string for Firefox OS. This is causing Firefox OS browsers to be redirected to the desktop version of the website rather than mobile.

:: Steps To Reproduce

1. Open Firefox OS browser
2. Navigate to http://www.cyclingnews.com

:: Expected Result

Redirect to mobile site http://m.cyclingnews.com 

:: Actual Result

Receive desktop version of the site
