Tommy Bridewell feels Silverstone presents his best chance of edging MCE British Superbike title favourites Shane Byrne and Ryuichi Kiyonari for victory this season.

The Milwaukee Yamaha rider closed to within 10 points of team-mate Josh Brookes in the Showdown standings after taking a fine podium in race two at Assen and is focused on climbing two steps higher on the rostrum on Sunday.

Bridewell achieved his first brace of podium finishes at the Northamptonshire circuit in 2013 and has vowed to 'keep pushing' this weekend at the penultimate Showdown round.

"I am looking forward to Silverstone because last year it was the track where I scored my first double podium finish in BSB," he said.

"I know where we went wrong last year in terms of missing out on the wins as we didn't have the pace to beat Alex [Lowes] and 'Shakey'. We have made some really good steps this season and I feel that we are riding to 100 per cent of our potential; we just need to keep pushing this weekend.

"I think Assen was a good benchmark and if we can keep that momentum then it should be good as we want to run it to Shakey and Kiyo this weekend. I want to establish myself as the next one up to be battling with them and I think potentially this could be my best shot of overhauling them for the wins," added Bridewell, who claimed his maiden BSB win at Cadwell Park in August.

"I want to be winning again so we will dig in and see what we can do on Sunday."
