A solid journey, built on effort and victories,
A path to grow, a fire for the soul.
In the heart of the Corsa della Bora lies a robust spirit,
A bond that unites the team S1 with Trieste, the authentic, heartfelt Trieste,
Rugged and fervent, like a tempest at sea.
Trieste, brushed by the Bora, transcends mere place:
It embodies a powerful wind, raw but true.
The Barcolana on the sea, the Corsa della Bora in the Karst,
A land of sailors, a manifestation of a rugged stones.
These contrasts render it unique.
The Bora engulfs you, assimilates you, joins you with something that’s touched minds and hearts,
Of Intellectuals, scientists, artists.
The Corsa della Bora is a union of sea and mountains,
Its essence we aim to preserve, solid and genuine.
We took action in darkness, against fear.
We raced during the pandemic, feeling the clean wind while the world stood still.
Trieste is our heart, the Karst our blood,
The Bora, our soul.
We speak Europe’s tongues, from Italian to Slovenian, a song that binds the Continent.
In a world ever-changing, we’ll press on,
Expanding the Corsa della Bora, guided by the Bora.
Our highlands will become a even more destination, an endpoint, where guests will come for the Bora’s allure,
For the enchantment of the Karst.
The Corsa della Bora is more than a ranking; it will be a life’s experience.
With growth as its goal, it opens up a firm, thrilling future.
It’ll stand as a landmark.
The Cliffs of Duino, Trieste, the multilingual terrain,
They’ll speak the language of Karst and Bora.
A pivotal point in our collective journey:
The world will come to us, we’ll venture into the world,
But always with our hearts anchored to the Sea and the Karst,
Where together we’ll be part of a grander tale.
