I was trying to make it more complicated.

Re the cycle fender I was trying to mentally separate the skin friction of the moving tire and the general turbulence of a cavity normal to the air flow.

An interesting case might be the SAAB prototype, with it's downward-facing opening with an internal cycle fender.
