Tommy Bridewell says he's looking forward to attacking the BSB showdown zone for the second time in his career after guiding his Milwaukee Yamaha to a trio of podium finishes in the last three races.

Bridewell arrives at this weekend's Assen round in decent form despite falling off the circuit last time out at Donington's second race of the day.

The 26-year old still remains fourth in the championship, 54-points adrift of Shane Bryne, having taken his first ever BSB race win in dramatic circumstances at Cadwell Park two rounds ago. A further race one podium at Donington has left the Milwaukee rider with an outside chance in claiming a maiden championship for Yamaha.

Bridewell, who scored only his second ever BSB podium at Assen last season, also joined his team mate Josh Brookes to test their Yamaha machine at the Dutch TT circuit in preparation for this weekend's round and says the performance of the bike should enable him to mount an attack.

"It's good to be at this point of the season," said Bridewell. "We tested at Assen recently and we were fast and the bike is strong so now I am looking forward to getting the Showdown started as I am ready to just get going.

"I am sure most of the boys feel the same because it is a lot of pressure just to make the top six and then the next minute we are into the final three rounds so we want to just get stuck in and have a good go for it.

"If we can have some luck and just leather the thing then we could win it or we could be sixth after the final round at Brands Hatch, we just have to keep pushing and see what happens."
