Lewis Alan Bridger (born 4 November 1989, in Hastings, Sussex)[1] is a British speedway rider. He stepped straight into Elite League racing from the Conference League after one season with the Weymouth Wildcats. His career has included spells with Eastbourne Eagles and Lakeside Hammers.

On 21 September 2007, Bridger was selected to represent Great Britain at the 2007 Under 21-World Cup Final. In 2006, he became British Under 18 Champion and in 2009 he won the British Under 21 Championship.

On 20 November 2009, Bridger signed for Peterborough Panthers from his home town club Eastbourne Eagles. He returned to the Eagles for the 2011 and 2012 seasons before moving on to Lakeside Hammers in 2013. After two seasons with the Hammers he announced that would not ride in 2015, stating "I have lost my love for the sport, have no desire to race and am quite simply not enjoying it any more."[2]
