    I was reading about British Cyclist Alex Dowsett who today finished eight in the World Championship Time Trials, to find out that his father Phil was a British Motor recing driver in the eighties.

    What other cross sport parent / child combo's can you think of (I am generously allowing Motor Racing to be given sports status)

    nba hall of famer karl malone's illegitimate son, Demetrius Bell plays LT for the philadephia eagles of the nfl.

    GM of the chicago white sox of the MLB, Kenny Williams' son plays WR for the NFL 49ers.

    former NFL lineman Mark Schelreth's son Daniel is a pitcher for the Detroit Tigers.

    there are probably more but can't think of them at the moment :)
