local towns usually have big celebrations for their catholic saint, or foundation anniversary.

back in the day, soccer games used to be arranged as part of the celebrations. nowadays, downhill races are slowly replacing soccer games.

these downhill races are usually backed up by the local (think county) authorities. thus, being part of the town celebration, they are mostly free, and some even provide free food/lodging for racers.
