“I still managed to finish off the season with a podium so I’m thankful to the team that I was able to contribute.
“Considering the past couple of weeks I’ve had I really am generally happy with the weekend. That was a really hard race for me physically. All year physically I’ve been fine but today I definitely wasn’t.
“I don’t think I have ever been so blown. I am just glad it is over. My body is not feeling great but I have to look on the bright side.
“I made it through, and I didn’t think at any period last week that I would be here.
“I am really just truly grateful for my health, to be alive, and looking forward to recovering over the period we are off, and then getting my body back to where I know it should be.”
