Keeping the start of the week fresh, FUEL’s Stacked Sundays will include premieres of new original series and specials, kicked off by “FUEL’s 54321 Weekly Update” at 8:00pm ET/PT. This winter, FUEL will premiere two new series: “M80,” which takes viewers on a wild ride into the fast paced and often times unruly world of freestyle motocross with the best riders, spots, hits, tricks, tattoos, shenanigans and, of course, fire; and “Pro-Files,” which looks into the lives of action sports athletes through interviews with friends and family and background history on what really makes them who they are inside and outside their professional circle. The network will also unveil new seasons of current series “Skate Maps,” “The Standard Snowboard Show,” “Exposure,” “Sacred Ride” and “Concrete Wave.”
