Lacing Pattern and Spoke Count

Hi. I'm new to this forurm and hoping for some advice on a wheelset I want to buy for my son. He races cross a couple times a week. I'm thinking of getting him Mavic CXP-33's on Chris King hubs.

Is 28 for the front and 32 for the rear a cood spoke selection? He weighs 140.

And what lacing pattern should I get, 2x or 3x?

Any comments would be great.

2x front 3x rear would be the way I'd go. Or on the rear you could go 2x non drive side and 3x drive side.
