Javal, if you're referring to the kind of event I defined above, I think hybrids etc. would be pretty uncommon in NAmerican sportives, but certainly not unheard of, especially 'flat-bar road bikes' (think Specialized Sirrus, Giant Rapid, etc.). I ride a Sirrus (don't much care for drop bars), and fitness permitting would certainly be interested in trying a sportive at some point, just for the sheer h_ll of it!
