Shaun White has graced every Winter X Games this century. That 14-year streak may come to an end in two weeks.

White said Thursday he is unlikely to compete at the X Games that begin Jan. 23, according to USA Today.

White, 27, is not only the two-time reigning Olympic halfpipe champion, but he is also the six-time reigning X Games halfpipe champion.

The X Games in Aspen, Colo., do not conflict with U.S. Olympic selection events, which end for snowboarding Jan. 19.

He first competed at the Winter X Games at age 13 in 2000, finishing 15th in the halfpipe.

White also told the newspaper he’s “very excited” about the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, when he will be 31.

White qualifies for both finals in Breckenridge; Olympic qualification in sight
