Hmm, I don't like that. The AP system seems to me adequate to model this - I don't think we need special contingency attack rules and the like.

I'd do it almost the diametric opposite - I'd insist they use a movement ability TN (as they are executing a movement action) but carry the AP over from the CC contest - it is the same contest, even if both combatants have switched skills. the initial contribution of their CC is already reflected in their AP total, but I would allow them to roll CC or RC as Augments if they were also trying to "drive off the pursuer".
