ASSEN DISAPPOINTMENT FOR BRIDEWELL

British rider Tommy Bridewell's hopes of adding to the points he scored in the opening round of the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup at Valencia earlier in the month were dashed when he finished in a disappointing 20th place at round two held at Assen yesterday.

Aboard the Lorenzini by Leoni Yamaha R1, the 20 year old from Devizes in Wiltshire struggled throughout qualifying with handling problems and despite some marginal improvements, he could only manage 26th place on the grid.

But showing typical Bridewell tenacity, Tom soldiered on gamely to bring the bike home to a top twenty position after a race long battle which saw a dozen riders battling it out for the lower leaderboard places.

"We've really struggled with the handling of the bike over the past couple of meetings for some reason so we have a lot of work to do to get it right. Obviously, I'm disappointed to finish in 20th as that's not what I'm here for but I couldn't have ridden the bike any harder without crashing it. We'll sit down and discuss what changes we need to make before the next round at Monza as the plan is to be battling at the front from now on" said Tom.

Bridewell will be ideally placed going into the next European Superstock round on May 10th as the second race in the Italian Superstock Championship takes place at the same track near Milan this forthcoming weekend where he'll be looking to make some major strides forward.
