Kargil, Oct 10: Lhakpa Tsering of Team Polaris, one of the favourites to win the title, dropped out of the 20th edition of the Raid de Himalaya due to  an electrical failure here on Wednesday.
Lhakpa , the winner of the Raid in  2015, saw his RZR 1000 Turbo Dynamix betray him on the opening day itself, 
that too in Stage 1 as he went all out in the tough Kargil sector.
The first day’s stage took the over 200 competitors to Sankoo, and Umba La, one of the higher mountain pass at an elevation of 4.496 meters. 
From Umba La, they all headed to Drass, the gateway to Ladakh.
For the first time in its 20-year-history, the Raid began from Kargil and will cross some of the highest stretches in the Himalayas. A total of 75 teams are competing in the Raid Xtreme, comprising Xtreme 4X4, Xtreme Moto and Xtreme Alpine.
