Indurain's son knows his life is already solved as his father is a millionare. Of course he has the preasure of being his son and everybody is going to compare him with his father, but if he fails well, it is not going to be a tragedy for him.
Maybe a valid point, but then again if you want something enough, and the talent is there, then you can achieve it.
There are other cases outside of cycling where father and sons have both done extremely well
