Apart from including the survey questionnaire
and some necessary descriptive information, these appendices include
most the results of the extra analyses undertaken to identify
the effects of different factors on the results. These included
the degree to which self-rated experience levels were representative
of the other experience indicators in the results, the differences
in response according to rider gender, differences according to
rider experience levels, and differences according to the importance
of racing to the riders.
Full inclusion of these results was
inappropriate in the main text. Instead, the main text includes
references to the results in appendices where necessary. Also,
the tables presented in some of these appendices are more complex
and cluttered than would be acceptable in the main text. This
is because their main purpose is to convey the extra information
provided by these extra analyses in as compact a form as possible.
It is expected that readers with a particular interest in certain
topics amongst the appendices will be willing to draw out the
key items of interest to themselves.
