Jan Ullrich will continue to race for T-Mobile after talks with team manager Walter Godefroot, who had raised questions over his commitment.
Ullirch had never finished outside of the Tour's top three before this year
Ullrich, the 1997 Tour de France winner who finished fourth in this year's race, was unhappy after unfavourable comparisons with Lance Armstrong.
But Godefroot said: "It was a good discussion. In the future we're going to speak more often together.
"Jan will continue to race for T-Mobile," he added.
Ullrich had vowed to take "appropriate steps" after Godefroot's comments that he "cycled to live", while six-time Tour champion Armstrong "lives for cycling".
Both men refused to comment on the nature of the talks between them.
Ullrich's fourth place was his lowest finish in seven Tours, as he finished nine minutes behind Armstrong.
Godefroot expressed his disappointment at Ullrich's performance and admitted to being at loggerheads with his personal coach Rudy Pevenage.
