It wasnt the best of weekends for Husqvarna LeoVegas rider, Jesper Borjesson. He had a good start and held on for 2nd overall until half race. He ended up stretching his shoulder when went down hard into a rock in the dust.

It wasnt a serious injury but Jesper decided to stop when it got a little worse and he started losing momentum. He didnt want to risk further injury for the rest of the season, so he ended up with a DNF. It was the right choice given the situation.
