What were the caps out of interest?
Well, if you mean the fawn baseball jobbies, they are the Euskadi FT Association caps, very good quality they are too, I managed to mislay mine somewhere between here & Zumarraga, much to my chagrin!
If, however your referring to the oversized berets the winners were wearing, they are the 'Txpella', based on Basque national dress they are offered to victors in many sports in Euskadi, along with wheels of cheese & two foot long chorizo sausages aswell as the occasional cured ham hock, a practical people the Basques!
