MXA’S BIRTHDAY BOY: YANK IN KING GIUSEPPE’S COURT
Thomas Covington was born on January 23, 1996. Many in Europe consider him a transplanted AMA Pro, but in truth very few casual American fans have ever heard of Thomas Covington. He has never raced an AMA National or Supercross and went straight to Europe from Loretta Lynns. Originally racing for Kawasaki, he moved to Husqvarna’s 250 GP team and gave them a Grand Prix victory in 2016. Thomas Covington is 21 years old.
