Mehdi Sohrabi (Persian: مهدی سهرابی‎, born 12 October 1981 in Zanjan) is an Iranian professional racing cyclist, who as of 2013 rides for the Pishgaman Cycling Team. 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.[1] After one year as a rider for Lotto–Belisol, Sohrabi returned to his former team in 2013.[2] After two years he moved to the Tabriz Shahrdari Team, from where a year later he was already in the Pishgaman Cycling Team where he is still today.[3]
