Oxford Ducati’s Tommy Bridewell has revealed his disappointment with his performance this weekend, despite two front row starts and a podium finish.

The Devizes rider led today’s opening race for a few laps before binning it just before the half-way point with a low-side crash at Agostini.

But he salvaged his trip to Norfolk after joining the three-way Ducati fight for victory this afternoon and clinching a rostrum finish with only the Be Wiser bikes of Josh Brookes and winner Scott Redding ahead of him.

Although his weekend may have looked to end on a high, Bridewell believes he hasn’t make the most of the Oxford Racing package at Snetterton and will be eyeing the win next time out on home turf at Thruxton.

“I certainly shouldn’t be watching Scott and Josh ride away from me like that but I just lost a little bit of front end feeling after race one,” he admitted.

“I am massively disappointed because my expectations of myself are always a lot higher and the team have been giving me a good enough bike to win and I’m not delivering so I’m very frustrated at myself.

“I had a few little moments with the front, but ultimately it is important to consolidate the weekend with a podium. It’s disappointing for me but I can’t thank the team enough, they’re always behind me.

“I’m hard on myself and I need to sit in a corner and sort myself out but you know, I’ll come back stronger, I always work a lot harder and we will get it sorted.”
