Where And How It All Started: The Brothers Wyman

Where: Macedon, New York

How: Three brothers, three dirt bikes.

What do you get when you let three brothers separated by less than four years loose on two Yamaha PW50s and a Yamaha PW80 on the family farm in upstate New York? A race or two, perhaps? Throw in the fact that the Wymans were a racing family long before Kyle, Travis and Cody ever got their grubby little paws on a set of handlebars to burn laps on the 140-acre family farm. After all, their grandfather Harv was the founder/operator of Harv’s Harley-Davidson and their mom, Kim, even drag raced motorcycles and trucks for more than just giggles. The racing gene was definitely there for the taking.

Welcome to the Wyman household in the 1990s.

Based on all that is there any wonder that the MotoAmerica series would end up with all three competing in everything from Mission King Of The Baggers (Kyle and Travis) to Yuasa Stock 1000 and Medallia Superbike (Travis and Kyle), REV’IT! Twins Cup (Cody) and Junior Cup (Cody)?

Bob Wyman stands behind Cody, Travis and Kyle back in the day and he’s now a MotoAmerica paddock fixture as he helps all three when needed.
The Wyman boys had plenty of success in flat track racing before moving to road racing.
