Is All Power Equal ?

Just been reading a really interesting article about the power requirements of a time trialist compared with a climber. Obviously body mass must come into the equation but it seems it’s not quite that simple. I wonder where the requirements of cyclocross fit in to the mix? A muddy race needs almost constant power to keep the bike moving (to stop it decelerating). However a dry race can include parts which feel more like a time trial with a few ups and downs thrown in. Food for thought and clearly we are all predetermined to be able to do one thing or another. Or not ? Lol
