In The Spotlight - Ronan Higgins (Carn Wheelers)

Last week saw the break-up of the HTC High Road Team.  Mark Cavendish was rumoured to have been seen in both Tommie McGrath's menswear shop in Maghera and in Walsh's Hotel.  He was rumoured to have tweeted that he was on route to Carn Wheelers.

The deal never materialised.  The management team of Carn Wheelers realised that they had indeed got the best sprinter in their ranks already.  That man is Ronan Higgins.  If you "go for a 30" with this man, he is nearly impossible to shake off.  It's time to meet the Maghera Missile.
