Hello welcome to the forums.
Victory? You don't see that on a Vitus often. I agree on the failure issue, I never saw or heard of a catastophic failure leading to serious death or injury. I only ever saw one 'broken' Vitus and the had a few cracks around the bottom of the lower head lug. I did see a Alan like this where the seat tube pulled out of the BB but the owner took a rock to it and rode home. then SuperGlued or something.
I dare say more riders were more likely injured by over zealous "Drillium" practices
