He said "This could potentially be my last stab at a world championship, I will still compete internationally over in Dubai during their season, and also race back in the UK and hope to return and defend my title at the Abu Dhabi Yas Triathlon around the Formula One Circuit.
"It's a big decision, however, I am not getting any younger and feel London would be a great time to have a break from the world championships and focus on a career.
"I am hoping to return to Dubai to get stuck into some coaching over there, it's got so much potential and with the likes of Jenson Button keen to be involved it's a real opportunity."
Lewarne, who has struggled for form since returning from a great first season in Dubai, is determined however. to get back on track during the winter and be in the best shape possible for the 2014 season.
"It's been a tough season, and I have found it hard to settle into a routine back home, but over the next four weeks I will be doing everything possible to be the best I can be in London.
"The World Championships take place in Hyde Park in September and will be based around the London Olympics course.
"Hopefully we can put on a good show for everyone up in London, there are a few athletes from Cornwall going up and competing in the various age groups and I am sure they are also looking forward to the championships.
"I would like to thank sponsors Thomas Auto Tech in Connor Downs for all their support, as athletes without some form of support competing at such a high level would be difficult."

PENRYN 6, REDRUTH UNITED RESERVES 2
After two successful promotions the Reds came back down to earth in their first game in Trelawny Division Two away to Penryn.
Kyler Letcher opened the scoring on 3 minutes for Redruth but Penryn got two quick goals to go to the break 2-1.
The home side went 3-1 up but Redruth fought back after 10 minutes of pressure with Andy Osborne to make it 3-2. Penryn then got another three goals near the end to flatter the scoreline, but it has given Reds Manager Matt Mitchell a rethink before the next game in two weeks time.
