Hilly Sportive 10 Weeks Beginner/Intermediate is a 10 week plan designed for the Cyclist or Triathlete who trains with power, HR (Heart Rate), or RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) and can train 7:30-13 hours per week (excluding Rest Weeks). You will need to be able to devote between 2-7 hours to training on your weekends.
Cyclosportive is short for the French term randonnée cyclosportive or sportive for short and are indeed a very popular style of event. While sportives can vary wildly in distance and most include a timed start to finish, others are really just a big group ride. One thing that pretty much remains the same across all is that they are open to riders of all abilities!
This particular plan is designed for riders who have been riding for 3 years and are riding 5-7 times per week. You should already be able to complete a 100 mile ride.
This plan is for the cyclist who is interested in increasing their endurance, getting faster and improving their performance in Sportives.

Allowed me to compete at a high level
The training was right on point that allowed me to compete at a high level. I finished and rode with a group of 4 who led from start to finish. There were 2 triathletes who pushed the pace and I know they had the endurance. The pace was high but I was able to manage my energy efforts. Just finish doing a recovery ride and keeping my food intake high. I surprised myself on the hills and I think it had to do with the VO2 max hill intervals. Thank You
