I can't see anything in the rules to indicate that "roll" automatically excludes bumps. For instance the result after bumps is described as a "roll" on p67 (step d "Compare your result..."). Personally I would read both as applying to the result after bumps.
I would add that if there is a clear imbalance in the primary abilities as there is here it is probably better in most cases to treat the lesser opponent as a follower.
