     protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
                       RadTabStrip1.SelectedIndex = 0;
                       string x = RadTabStrip1.SelectedTab.Text;

    On initial load you cannot access any of the tabs (the selected one including) in the Page_Load handler. At this point the control is not yet populated, so you can use the TabStrip's OnDataBound (OnDataBound="RadTabStrip1_DataBound") event instead, in which the tabs will be accessible. After the initial load on subsequent postbacks the selected tab will be accessible in the Page_Load handler.
