Shaun White ended the X-Games with a bang, for the sixth straight year. He tied the record for most X-Games gold medals in a row with Tucker Hibbert, who broke the record earlier that day in Snowmobile Snowcross.

White’s second run started with an X-Games record, he went up 24’1″ during a Backside air. Then, he continued with the same run that earned him a perfect 100 last year. The run was highlighted with back-to-back double cork 1260s However, this year he only earned a 98.0 which was still 5.7 points better than 14 year-old Ayumu Hirano’s silver medal winning run. White, 26, was the oldest of the competitors, while Hirano was the youngest of the field.

White was determined to destroy the competition after failing to medal in Saturday’s Slopestyle final.
