  When Buffalo eliminated college baseball, 'It derailed a lot of lives, a lot of plans' While attention has shifted in college sports to the state of the fall season, the clearest sign of the pandemic’simpact is the number of teams cut.The text came mid-trip, pinging phones with an ominous alert: Please attend a meeting at 8 a.m. tomorrow in the university’s art center, referred to on campus as the “drama room.” Unbeknownst to the baseball team, athletes and coaches on three other programs — men’s soccer, women’s rowing, and men's swimming and diving — were being given the same message.

Seven-time time trial world champion Tony Martin can well imagine continuing his cycling career. "I am currently working with the team to outline the framework, how and in what form it could go on," said the 35-year-old of the "Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung". Martin is currently employed by the Dutch team Jumbo-Visma and, before the Corona break, had considered ending his career after this year.

Negotiations with his team are also about the number of race days, he said. Or about other problems that would plague him as a father, said Martin. He used to get up after a fall and the first thought was: "Get back on the bike quickly. Today, as a father of a little daughter, I think: what if I did."

The professional cyclist conceded that there were certain aspects with which he found it increasingly difficult. "But it was good for me to use the Corona time to notice what I had in cycling and how much fun it was." The time trial specialist gets back into the competition at the Tour de l’Ain (August 5 to 9).
