Riding Against both Father and Son

This doesn't exactly fit under the topic of this thread, but another longevity-related statistic occurred to me after seeing both Rebellin and Ghirmay in the GP Industria & Artigianato results. Ghirmay was born in 2000. That means that Rebellin has competed against riders born in the 2000s, 1990s, 1980s, 1970s, 1960s, and 1950s (Sean Kelly, for example). Has anyone else competed against riders born in six different decades?

What makes you so sure there weren't any riders left from the 40's when Rebellin started in the peloton? (Hennie Kuiper appears to have come close, and Zoetemelk was just a little too old...)
 
Philippe Gilbert has raced against Johan and Stefano Museeuw.

Since we've been discussing this topic, interesting article in Marca. We have this about the 3 sets of father and son pairings he's raced against (not just racing at the same time, but actually raced in the same races as).
The 3 sets are:
Erik and Rick Zabel, Nicola and Riccardo Minali, and Erik and David Dekker


That's not a complete list, though - more like lazy journalism. Valverde also raced against both Farazijn father and son. Against Peter Farazijn e.g. at Milan-Sanremo 2002, against Maxime Farazijn at Flèche Wallonne 2017.
Indeed, but what is notable is that he raced against Rick Zabel, Riccardo Minali and David Dekker in the UAE Tour after racing against Erik Zabel, Nicola Minali and Erik Dekker at Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo in 2002.
