Don't event think retirement dude. Too much talent. There is a lot of good in your splits. You won a split, was 2nd in another. Think about that. You ran faster than anybody. So you know you have the speed. You fought back and never gave up. Moving up 60 places from 117th place at #6 to 57th at the finish.
Oh yeah how many Danes beat you? I count only 1 of 6. Funny that eh! The Canadian Dane beat most of the Danes. But don't you dare take their inevitable offer to join the red and white dynamite. #MapleLeafForever
Still lots of racing here and then 12 months to make adjustments for JWOC 2019 in the homeland.
Retire!? Don't you dare. As Mike said, you're too good.
Ya man! That's a great result to build off of - then have a great year of training to whoop everyone in Denmark.
But still - more races to go this year.
You know what you have to do technically/focus-wise.
Physically - leave it all out there til you vomit. You can do it!
Vomit at the finish line - not at the party.
