Will Team Milram participate in Paris-Nice, if the current controversy continues? No, Gerry van Gerwen, Commercial Manager, told Cyclingnews. "It is not a question of participating, but a matter of following the rules and instructions of the UCI."
He continued, "UCI ProTour teams cannot participate in a race on a national calendar: article 2.1.009 of the UCI regulations. So if the race Paris-Nice will be taken out of the UCI-governed cycling by the ASO and turns into a 'free' race on the French national calendar, it is clear that no UCI ProTour team is allowed to participate in Paris-Nice."
