dc.description.abstractThis study will address the previous evidence that male and female athletes differ in their motivation in sports, by specifically exploring the self-reported incentives in motivation amongst male and female recreational motorcycle racers. The study explores the potential change in an athlete 's motivation when exposed to the idea that an external award will be rewarded prior to the completion of a motocross race on a closed circuit. The experiment will test the assertion that female motorcycle racers are less likely to be motivated to participate in motorsports for external awards, such as winning and receiving trophies and/or money. It is hypothesized that female racers are more likely to report motives for their competing in the sport of motorcycle racing based upon the internal pleasure of out-doing oneself and reaching personal goals. The study will conclude by discussing implications of the research, and why further research in similar areas is necessary.en_US
