Sohrabi delays season

Category: Cycling

Mehdi Sohrabi (Lotto-Belisol) believed he would start today's Le Samyn, but to visa problems, the Iranian cyclist must delay his 2012 European debut. He is now expected to start in the Three Days of West Flanders.

Sohrabi did not receive his visa in time and therefore, he arrived in Belgium too late for today's race, according to Het Nieuwsblad.

Sohrabi is making his WorldTour debut this year. He started his season in Tour Down Under and later finished second in the Asian championships road race.
