Of all the silly surprises, this is one of the biggest: Josh Hansen, winner of the last two X Games Moto X gold medals, will race a Monster Energy-backed Pro Circuit Kawasaki for the entire 2010 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series. Hansen, who was formerly a KTM factory rider, as well as a 125 Supercross winner for Yamaha of Troy, among other teams, will race the U.S. Open this weekend on the KXF450.

We will have more details on the deal as they become available.
