In the midst of his newly-supercharged career, two-time X Games motocross champion Josh Hansen has selected RPRT Communications (rp-rt.com) to join the team of leading industry professionals who will supervise his career development.
The announcement follows his recent signing of publicity veteran Eileen Koch (eileenkoch.com) to oversee his PR and marketing needs.
As a top talent/athlete management company that offers services in a variety of different market niches, RPRT will manage Hansen’s endorsements and contract negotiations.
The Beverly Hills-based company prides itself on working within the framework of pop culture and young Hollywood and capitalizing on its diverse relationships to maximize client-branding opportunities.
RPRT now adds Hansen to its esteemed client roster, which includes: Erik Ellington, Geoff Rowley, Curren Caples, Arto Saari, Pat Milbery, Jorge Gurgel, among others.
In January, renowned motocross coach Mitch Payton selected Hansen to ride the West Region for the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit team.
Making what many have called a comeback, Hansen finished at the top of the season, winning the final round of the 2010 Supercross West Lites series at Salt Lake City, placing second at the AMA East/West Shootouts in Vegas, and concluding top 10 overall.
Since stepping into the limelight of professional motocross at the age of 17, Hansen’s career has exploded, receiving top honors in the AMA Lites Class, Full Factory Ride sponsorships and back-to-back X Games victories in 2008 and 2009.
With inimitable drive and natural talent – inheriting the smooth riding style from his father, Donnie Hansen, former world supercross champion – Hansen’s professional campaign has placed him amongst the very best of the sport.
Die-hard fans are hoping for a three-peat victory for Josh at this year’s Summer X Games in Los Angeles (July 29-Aug 1).
