    on first day of raid i came to knew that all the participants have installed a different jet in there carburetor to suck more oxygen due to high altitude .rest of the competitors had motorcycles with fuel injection. i was unaware of this trick so speed of my motorcycle was less due to less oxygen

    around 1 am i reached kargil city .it was subzero temperature over there.i spent night in hotel .other [participants were also in same hotel i asked them about the morning programme of rally. in morning we have to get up at 5 am and report at rally starting point. there was 70 kilometer transport stage. than there was a 67 kilometer competitive stage from sankhu village to drass .it was a dirt road made by Indian army during kargil war as an alternate to drass to leh highway to avoid Pakistani shelling .it was first day of race i was quite excited. we had to go to the starting point in 2 hour so there was enough time to reach sankhu village. local people new about rally so they were also excited and waving us
