Tyler Wright has defeated Courtney Conlogue to claim the Roxy Pro France 2014, in three-to-five foot waves, at Les Guardians. The ASP Women's World Tour title race is on.

Wright surfer opened the day by eliminating current world number one Sally Fitzgibbons in their quarterfinal clash. In the final, Tyler displayed robust and progressive surfing on the available right-handers.

"The conditions were so fun out there and I just got into a great rhythm. I think my first four waves were all over 9 points, so I was really having fun. I've had a lot of success here in France over the years, and I'm rapt to put another win on the board for this year,” explained Wright.

The Australian showed her power turns, aerials and high-speed surfing skills to collect the highest heat total of the event, an 18.53 out of a possible 20.

"I feel like I've been surfing well all year but have had some tough luck in my heats. That said, I've managed to fly a little bit under the radar and keep myself in the race. It's so tight up there at the top of the ratings so it should be a great finish to the year."

Tyler Wright jumps from fourth to second on the ASP Women's World Championship Tour rankings. She will be able to discuss a maiden world title in the upcoming Cascais Women's Pro 2014, in Portugal.
