More bad luck

Wasn't this The Lightest Crankset at one time?

I broke a pedal axle once. It's an interesting drill to pedal 15 miles on one leg.
To be fair to the Ritchey crank, I've seen a top quality Campy crank break just the same way, broken by someone (my wife) who shouldn't have been strong enough to do so. It would depend, I think, on the number of cycles and the average stress of each cycle. That being said, some manufacturers obviously skate very close to the edge. It seems the gram Nazis out there are willing to put up a certain failure rate.
