Bridewell splits from Tyco Honda

"We realised that it was perhaps better to call it a day" - Tommy Bridewell.
Tommy Bridewell and the Tyco Honda British Superbike team have parted company with immediate effect.

After a promising start to the season, which included a podium in round one at Brands Hatch, Bridewell has struggled and - following a discussion with team owner Ian Woollacott - it was decided to separate ahead of this weekend's sixth round at Snetterton.

"I'm disappointed it hasn't worked out after a great start to the season but we've really struggled since," said Bridewell. "I've had some issues with the handling of the bike which the team has done their best to help with but we realised that it was perhaps better to call it a day. I'd like to thank the team for the opportunity and wish them continued success in the future."

"It's a shame that Tommy has been unable to replicate the success he had for us in the first round as we know him to be a very talented rider," added Woollacott. "We have had some great moments in the past and I wish him all the very best for the future."

Tyco Honda will continue with Peter Hickman in the main BSB class and Patric Muff in the BSB-EVO series.

Bridewell plans to explore options in both Europe and the UK.

Mofo at least they are trying to put a good team out there,remember they are essentially Quay garage team from previous years.The crashes Tommy has had on the bike in the first couple of rounds cost not far off 50k id bet.No private team can afford to keep a bike on the track with that kind of damage happening regularly.I cant see how you knock them for trying........

This seems crazy, Tommy is a great rider with good potential. Something else must of been happening for him to want to leave, didn't Tyco just get last years HM Plant machines? So the bike is good, i'm honestly shocked and confussed. Anyone know anything?
