Milwaukee Yamaha's Tommy Bridewell celebrated a brilliant podium double at Silverstone as the MCE British Superbike rider continues to justify his place in the team.

Bridewell switched to Shaun Muir's outfit after impressing on the Halsall Kawasaki and has grabbed the opportunity with both hands, twice finishing in third place on the YZF-R1.

"The first race was a bit messy to begin with and I didn't get the start I needed but after a few laps I managed to get behind Josh [Brookes] and PJ [Jacobsen] and it turned into a good race," he said.

"I enjoyed it a lot, I was sat behind PJ for a lot of laps and I knew I had to pass him, but I just couldn't and when I did I then couldn't lose him which was great.

"The second race was difficult as I got behind Josh and PJ at the start again and I knew I had the pace to run with Alex [Lowes] and 'Shakey' [Byrne] so I needed to get passed them fast," added Bridewell, who also claimed a third place finish at Assen on his debut for the team.

"By the time I did the lead two had dropped me and I didn't have the pace to catch them."

It was the first time Bridewell finished on the rostrum twice at a BSB meeting and he is now looking forward to the last round at Brands Hatch on October 20.

"I think we are just lacking that extra two tenths even though our pace was fast but I am happy as this is my first double podium and I am pleased with how I rode," he said.

"The Milwaukee Yamaha team have done a phenomenal job to turn it around for me since Friday so we will see what we can do at Brands Hatch."
