Roxy Pro France: Moore Earns Jeep Leader's Yellow Jersey

Paula Lehman

Roxy Pro Quarterfinals Highlights
A comeback story, a rookie rises, and Moore steals the Jeep Tour leader's yellow jersey for the second time since Trestles.

With her advance to the Semifinals of the Roxy Pro France, two-time World Champion Carissa Moore (HAW) has overtaken Courtney Conlogue (USA) for the No. 1 spot on the Jeep Leaderboard.

Moore's victory came over a formidable Nikki Van Dijk (AUS). Like most of the Quarterfinal heats, the faceoff between the two in-form surfers went down to the wire, with Van Dijk scoring a 9.07 in the final minutes. But Moore stuck to her game, showing refined rail-to-rail surfing for the heat win.

Moore Advances to Roxy Pro Semis
Watch the close heat that saw Carissa Moore advance to the Roxy Pro Semifinals and regain the yellow jersey in time for the final event of the season in Maui.

Conlogue, who was eliminated in Round 4 by defending event champion Tyler Wright (AUS), has one more contest in which she could win the World Championship. She and Moore have swapped the No. 1 spot after every contest since the Vans US Open in August. The Title race remains tight, but Moore has the momentum when the Target Maui Pro kicks off November 21.
