What constitutes this category of climb. How much more difficult is it than a category 1? What climbs would be considered hors in the US? What gearing do the pros use and how do you train for them?

And how is it that Mt Ventoux so more difficult than the other hors climbs in the TDF?

(sorry for all the questions...)

Once you reach "hors" ("beyond," I think), then there is nothing else to indicate increased difficulty.
