Tucker Hibbert makes Winter X history with six-peat in snowmobile snocross

Tucker Hibbert of Pelican Rapids, Minnesota, made Winter X Games history Sunday by becoming the first athlete to six-peat. Hibbert won the gold medal in the snowmobile snocross for the sixth consecutive time, leading from start to finish and crossing the finish line 11 seconds ahead of silver medalist Ross Martin. Tim Tremblay took bronze.

It was Hibbert’s seventh snocross gold medal and it came 13 years after he won his first, at age 15.

“I’ve been doing this for so long, and I still had butterflies all morning,” Hibbert told ESPN. “That’s what keeps it fun. I think the six-peat added to that. I’m excited for Shaun–I hope he can pull it off later [Sunday night] and we can both hold six-peats.”

White is seeking a six-peat in snowboard superpipe on Sunday night.

Here’s a look at Hibbert’s run, all 18 minutes:
