SX 2003 vs SX 2013…which is better…….

Here are a couple of vids , one is from the first UCI SX race held at Woodward in 2003 , and the other is this years final SX race from Chula Vista.
Which kind of racing/track do you prefer?? is it the gnarly downhill , rough, dirt bermed Woodward style or the groomed to perfection tarmac bermed track at this years final round, I really liked the early tracks at Woodward , I think you needed a bit more all round bike skill to get around the track , I think the modern SX tracks now are a bit dull to be honest.
Have a look at the vids and let us know your opinion , I got a feeling all the young guns are gonna go Chula , and all the old farts are gonna go Woodward haha.

“The Final of the very first UCI BMX Supercross race at Camp Woodward East in 2003. It’s the beginning of the BMX race series that lead to the induction of BMX Racing in to the Olympics!

The first UCI SX race was held at the world famous Camp Woodward East in Woodward, PA USA. Attended by most of the fast pros of the era, this race was held the same weekend as a hurricane blew thru the east coast of the U.S. but they got the race in after the storm was done dropping tons of rain on the course!

The winner of the inaugural race was Robert De Wilde, who held off a hard charging Paul Lange until Paulie exploded over one of the jumps out of the massive downhill sweeper in the middle of the course”
