Racing Cross, bringing a few sets of Sew-Up wheels is where many people go.
as there is a backlog of 70's wheels with tubular rim wheels un used for decades
and perhaps replaced by clinchers on their C&V bikes .. so a low cost supply of rims is available.
build them up around your favorite cassette hubs
what qualifies are a "robust road bike wheelset"?
3 cross 32 spoke or 36 spoke .. (& those sew ups or the CR18 clincher rim you find adequate, already)
some favor deep section rims .. ones coming to a point wont have a flat surface to pile mud on top of.
I sense your first race is still ahead of you , just get a set of CX clincher tires and Go .. see what your neighbors use .. ..
