Thomas Covington to return to U.S. with Rockstar Energy Husqvarna in 2019

June 11, 2018

Thomas Covington is set to return to the U.S. next year as part of the Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team. The 22-year-old announced his future plans this past weekend at the MXGP of France (video below).

With Zach Osborne graduating to the 450 Class next season, the factory Husqvarna squad has an open spot coming up on its 250 roster, which will be filled by Covington.

Covington, one of the few Americans contesting the MXGP series, has been racing overseas since 2014 and has accumulated three victories in his career. He had his best season to-date last year, when he finished fourth in the MX2 championship standings.

Covington also represented Team USA at the 2017 Motocross of Nations.
