I have been using a set of Cane Creek deep-V at the last two races, with no problems. They have 16 spokes front and 28 spokes rear.
I have also seen Mavic Helium used for racing.
Here in Europe it is were common to see Mavic Reflex 28 spoke with DT revoution(1,8/1,5mm) spokes. Not everyone can afford a set Zipp 404´s.
