Bridgestone has announced the tyre options available to the Factory and Open class riders in this weekend's season-opening Qatar MotoGP night race.

Open-class riders (which includes Ducati) will be allocated the soft and medium compound asymmetric rear slicks, while Factory-class riders (Honda and Yamaha) will use the medium and hard asymmetric rears.

A new addition for 2014 is Bridgestone's tyre classification system, with Green (Extra-soft), White (Soft), Black (Medium) and Red (Hard) coloured markings used to make it easier for fans to identify which tyre options the riders are using.
