COVINGTON The California teenager is straddling
the world right now, racing MX2 on the Grand Prix circuit
while prepping for his Lucas Oil Pro Motocross debut
in May. But after a solid third in his first race, Covington
has struggled a bit. He had planned to join Mitch Payton and the
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit Kawasaki team in the States for the
rest of 2014 but has since received a two-year contract with CLS
Kawasaki in Europe.
TRANSFERS We all love watching Kevin Windham’s
ridiculous transfer leaps as part of the opening ceremo-
nies, but we also knew that sooner or later he was going
to throw one away. It finally happened in Houston, where K-Dub
crashed hard while practicing on Friday afternoon. He checked out
all right but passed on the next night’s show. Time to revisit some
LIVIA As in Lancelot, the fast French girl who scored
a point in MX2 for a twentieth-place moto finish at the
Grand Prix of Thailand. But she was lapped four times by
race winner Jeffrey Herlings—and twice by the man just in front of
her in nineteenth, Thailand’s Thanarat Penjan.
PALA The popular California track may be closed for
good, according to a press release from the Pala General
Council, which voted to “terminate the lease of the track
operators over their failure to provide proof of insurance
to one of three policies required to securely operate the raceway.”
The track has been closed since mid-March.
PRACTICE CRASHES Over the course of two
days in April, four of the world’s top riders—250 East Region points leader Martin Davalos, GP moto winners Max
Nagl and Glen Coldenhoff, and Australian MXGP rider
Todd Waters—were all injured in practice crashes.
