"I even considered walking away from it all" says talented Italian
The Italian has written about his 2008 despair on his own blog, Marco33. On it, he said: "The 2008 season is over. It has been a year in which I have had to learn from my disappointments and I don´t look back with regret because I reached a big turning point in my life in June.
"It was a really hard time and to be honest I even considered walking away from it all. Then one day something clicked and I realised that there were still so many people backing me and believing in me, and that made a big difference to me.
"Now I am starting to see things differently and I feel really good. My work is the biggest passion in my life and I am going to keep giving it everything I´ve got because I enjoy riding so much. It is not like I haven´t tried hard this year though, in fact it was the opposite, I did all I could to try and win. But when things are going badly and nothing works like it should there is nothing more you can do.
"One thing I have learned is that you don´t always need to question yourself so much and say `where am I going wrong?´, because it doesn´t always help with looking forward. It just makes you worry more. Sometimes I think you need to let things be and just remind yourself that you are doing the right thing."
