According to a post on Covington’s Instagram page, the Husqvarna rider said that he had been diagnosed with the virus. One of the known symptoms of the virus is fatigue. Covington wrote, “Sorry I’ve been silent to everyone as to what’s been going on the last few weeks. After seeing the doctor and having tests done this week, I’ve been diagnosed with Epstein-Barr Virus. I’ve been super tired and lacking strength for around a month now and really hit a wall last weekend in Colorado. That’s when I knew something had to be wrong. Doing everything I can now to be back to myself as soon as possible. Thanks to everyone’s continued support and a huge thank you to @rockstarhusky for helping me through this.”
Crazy4Dirt wishes Covington a quick recovery and we hope to see him return to his MXGP form very soon!
