I haven't done the exercise, so honestly don't know the outcome. As I've said though, I feel the best indicator of performance and competitiveness isn't necessarily finsihing position, but the overall race duration margin between the winner and the rider/bike in question. To weed out the anomalies and get an "average perfomance indicator" then separate Wet & Dry races. Then add all the margins together and divide by the number to get an average figure for Wet & Dry. It might be educational to then compare the resulting Wet Race and Dry Race values between VR's 2012 rides, and Dovi's 2013 rides on the same bike. It should give a pretty fair and accurate indicator of relative performance and whether or not there's any progress.
