Lennox surfer Tyler Wright in sight of first tour success

LENNOX Head surfer Tyler Wright has continued her run of good form at the Roxy Pro in France.

Wright is in the mix for a maiden World Championship Tour win in 2013.

She beat Sofia Mulanovich and Alana Blanchard in the opening heat of the French event.

Wright registered a 14.37 (out of a possible 20) which saw her advance directly into the third round.

The Roxy Pro was scheduled to finish overnight.

It is the second last stop on the Women's World Championship Tour.

Wright is second on the WCT rankings behind Hawaiian Carissa Moore.

Moore has won three WCT events this year, while Wright has won two.

The final event of the year is the EDP Cascais Girls Pro in Portugal next month.

Wright won her first WCT event of her career at the Roxy Pro on the Gold Coast in March.
