White wins 4th straight pipe title at Winter X

ASPEN, Colo. -- Shaun White's sense of fashion was impeccable.

His snowboarding wasn't bad, either.

Wearing a black leather jacket and skintight pants, White captured his fourth straight superpipe crown at the Winter X Games as he held off Scotty Lago by performing his signature trick, a difficult maneuver few can do.

White, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, cemented the win on his second run Sunday night, pulling out the Double McTwist 1260 in which he launches himself high above the pipe, then does two head-over-heels flips and 3 1/2 rotations.Story:
