I would give much better odds of the mtb cop catching a suspect on a road bike than a cop on a road bike catching a suspect on an mtb.

You only need to be a little stronger on the road on an mtb to catch the road bike. But if you are on a road bike, and the suspect on an mtb, all the suspect needs to do is hop a couple curbs or shoot through some green space to lose you.
