ABS is inferior on any surface where the tires deform the terrain.

When you lock the brakes, a wedge of terrain forms in front of the tires and creates additional friction. If you have tires totally inappropriate to the terrain you're not going to stop very fast no matter whether you use ABS or not.

I'm no rallycrosser but I sure raced a lot of dirtbikes.
