CareerEdit

Sohrabi was born in Zanjan, Iran. In 2010 and 2011, Sohrabi won the UCI Asia Tour. At the end of the 2011 season, Sohrabi had many UCI-points, and because of this was contracted by UCI ProTeam Lotto–Belisol, that needed these points to secure their ProTeam status for the next season.[2] After one year as a rider for Lotto–Belisol, Sohrabi returned to his former team in 2013.[3] After three years he moved to the Tabriz Shahrdari Team for 2016, but moved to the Pishgaman Cycling Team for 2017.[4]
