To me path racing and track racing are the same thing. I remember when I would tell non cyclists that I raced on tracks, that they would think this was dirt track racing, so I would use the term path instead of track so that they would not confuse it with a cycle speedway racing. Perhaps a better term would have been velodrome racing?
