Easton EA90 Aero - disturbing

I am 54 years old. I am a very aggressive rider! I bought an Easton wheelset EA90 Aero, and am going through spokes like there's no tommorrow! I weigh 195, and climb hills constantly. I do not do any flat rides. I am all about hills. I am worried that I may have invested in a bad wheel set. I don't want to lose anytime waiting for EASTON to adjust any warranty on the wheels since that would keep me off the paths. I am angry that I am breaking spokes on my front wheel. I've already been down the road with TREK forsaking their Vector Pro users, now I feel like I am progressing from a TREK victim to a EASTON victim. When does it end? Or do I just have a bad attitude? Two spokes broke in as many weeks! Please pardon my attitude, I'm just upset.
The reviews were, all about riding the wheels off of curbs and such, and all I do are heavy workouts on chip seal. I do a lot of standing on my hill workouts, as I am not a spinner. Is anybody out there having the similar bad luck I'm having? I have my wheelset in for overhaul, and they're brand new! It sucks to be me! :-)

Could be low spoke count. Have your LBS check the spoke tension. If they're machine built wheels they may need to be touched up by a pro.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
