What wheelset do you have? Sometimes those boutique wheels have non-standard spokes, and you have to go with the special variety. But if you are lucky there may be a conventional spoke that is compatible, but
we need to know what wheels you have.
EDIT: Heh, looks like you already said it, "Race" is the model of the wheel, I thought you were just referering to them generically as 'wheels for racing'. Crazy model names.
Looks like most of the Race series uses standard j-bend spokes, so I'd go with the Wheelsmith spokes from oddsandendos.com like mentioned. They are reasonably priced, and good spokes. They may not exactly match the current spokes, but they should work nicely. Read the wheelbuilding section on sheldonbrown.com if you intend to replace the spokes yourself. Its not hard, but it can be a little touchy, especially with a low spoke count wheel.
9$ for a spoke... Geez...
