Colin Edwards says he is confident of a strong showing from the opening round of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship in Qatar after his and NGM Forward's strong effort in testing.

Though his team-mate Aleix Espargaro has courted the majority of the headlines in the run up to the new season, Edwards has also shown encouraging form on the Yamaha-based Open class machine.

Kicking off his 12th season in the MotoGP top flight with the Qatar Grand Prix, Edwards is confident of getting his year off to a strong start.
