Team Milram will be at the start of Paris-Nice this coming Sunday, the team announced Wednesday.

The compromise that was reached at Monday's meeting now allows the team to start in Paris-Nice," the team said on its website, team-milram.de. If a solution to the conflict not been reached, then the team would "probably" have followed the ruling of the UCI.

"UCI ProTour teams may not participate in a race that is on a national calendar," according to Milram Commercial Manager Gerry van Gerwen. "If Paris-Nice had been removed from the racing calendar and declared a 'free race' on the French calendar, then no UCI ProTour team would have been allowed to take part."
