Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 10th 2009
44 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 11, 2009 MB Born to burn rubber SHIREEN KHALIL Giuseppe Scarsella, of Haberfield, is this week's Junior Sports Star nominee. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP285113 THERE is no doubt Giuseppe Scarsella is born to ride. Most young boys dream about having their own motorbike and racing it as fast as they can, but for Haberfield's Giuseppe, his dream became an instant reality. His parents bought him his first motorbike, a Suzuki JR50, when he was only six years of age. ''My dad used to ride every Sunday and I always asked him to double me and sometimes he couldn't take me and I think he felt sorry for me. But he made my day when he got me my first bike after months of praying for it,'' Giuseppe, 15, said. The Concord High student who clocks up speeds of 235km/h said it's in his blood to ride. ''AssoonasIseeabikeIwantto ride it. I was put on this world to ride bikes.'' He doesn't waste any time. At 5am every day he hits the gym and trains regularly on the track. ''I do mainly fitness, cycling and the treadmill . . . it was pretty intense at first but I'm finding it easier as I'm fitter,'' he said.
