Freestyle Motocrosser Jeremy Stenberg in VH1 TV Show

American cable television network VH1 is getting ready to premiere “THE X LIFE” on January 10, an adrenaline-packed show that focuses on the world of action sports. The show features vert skater Pierre-Luc Gagnon, BMXer Cory Nastazio, Freestyle Motocrosser Jeremy Stenberg, and each athelete's significant other.

Stenberg, who is a 9-time X Games medalist and one of the freestyle motocross pioneers and innovators, states, "this TV show is going to showcase the sport to people who may have otherwise never, ever heard much about freestyle moto - but....we're gonna change all that now!"

The three couples will help depict different aspects of the action-sports lifestyle. Stenberg and his wife Susie have two children, a great home and live a "crazy, hectic lifestyle."

Nastazio is in the later stages of his career and is currently recovering from a 2004 car accident that left him with a brain hemorrhage and a collapsed lung. Nastazio's girlfriend, Nicole Panattoni, is already familiar with the reality-TV, having appeared on the first season of "America's Next Top Model."

Finally, Gagnon and his girlfriend, Denise Russo, are at a different point in their lives than the other two couples, as they don't have any children and enjoy a "conservative" lifestyle.

"The stars of action sports, and the women who love them, don't just live life on the edge -- they go beyond it, whether they're on the track, the ramp or just living their lives, and we couldn't be more thrilled to bring that wild ride to VH1,"
said Jeff Olde, EVP of Original Programming and Production, VH1, in a press release. "'The X Life' couples will bring a real adrenaline rush to TV."
