Sohrabi to miss Le Samyn due to delayed visa

Iranian to make European debut for Lotto in Three Days of West Flanders

Mehdi Sohrabi must delay his 2012 European debut for Lotto-Belisol, due to visa problems.  The Iranian  will now start in the Three Days of West Flanders on Friday, instead of Le Samyn on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old did not receive his visa in time and arrived in Belgium too late for today's race, according to Het Nieuwsblad.

Sohrabi is making his WorldTour debut this year with the Belgian team. After riding the Tour Down Under last month, he went on to finish second in the Asian championships road race.  He was the top ranked rider in the Asian Tour last year, with 13 wins.
