We would like to recognize Driven Cycling Academy which is ran by local BMX Pro Jeff Upshaw. The Treasure Valley is very LUCKY to have a mentor/teacher of the sport.
BMX is a competitive sport that all ages can join! It is a blast to see the 60+ cruiser classes! Nothing is more satisfying than watching the strider riders as young as 1 and 2 years old riding!
Currently we have 2 tracks in the valley, Eagle park BMX and Caldwell BMX. USA BMX runs the events, and keeps track of points for every rider.
We had the opportunity to interview Coach Jeff and ask some questions.
I moved to the Treasure Valley September of 2017. Going on 4 years this September.
I have maneuvered around to find my place to excel in the sport. I moved here from sunny San Diego where I lived for 2 years prior, training for the 2016 BMX Olympic team.
November 9th will be my 27th season.
My father was a D.A.R.E officer in the military. He did some research about BMX for a project he had made out for his D.A.R.E program attendees, the goal was to come up with non traditional sports for the youth to get involved in. We went out to a BMX track prior to my 7th birthday and I have been hooked ever since.
BMX stands for Bicycle Motocross
I would have to say the 2013 USA BMX grand Nationals
In 2013 I was going through a very tough time. Things started heading in a better direction for me leading up to the Grands. However, earlier that year my father had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. We unfortunately said our final good byes just a few weeks prior to the Grands and that race was my first race with out him being on the side lines or even just a phone call away. I never questioned going though as I know BMX is what my father always wanted for me. It was even more special to me because my mother—who normally doesn’t like to travel, attended that race weekend. We traveled there together and had a great time. I ended being on the podium on day 1 and got the over all win on day 2. I shared the stage with my mom and got to say a few words about my dad. Definitely a day to remember.
7a. Is BMX a safe sport for the Treasure Valley Youth?
Yes, There is a lot of positives that come from the sport of BMX. At the BMX track you get to put on a helmet and become your own character. It is a individual sport so it helps the rider find their identity through hard work, dedication and overcoming adversity day in and day out. No one sits the bench in BMX, you get rewarded based on how much effort you put in—such as life. Self development is built on 2 wheels and a BMX track. The kid who would get picked on at school because he may not have fit in with a specific group, fits right in at the BMX track. We all share the same passion and that’s to become better at our craft.
If you are looking to get started In BMX I would recommend you to come on out to the local track (Eagle park BMX or Caldwell BMX) to check it out. While at the track you will find families and local track members to help you along your journey. The community is very helpful and loving.
In certain Parts of the country you can race up to 2-5x a week. Here In Boise we have a pretty full schedule with racing being 2-3 a week (Wednesday evenings, Friday nights) and practice running Monday and Tuesday between both tracks.
Driven Cycling Academy is a program to help riders learn how to be prepared for competition day. We use a group style training format where riders get to compete against there team mates who are similar in skill level week in and week out. This program has been known to build bonds and friends ships as well as helping those riders gain confidence and trust into the process of becoming who they desire to be in the sport. Riders have 2-8 days a month of in person training with me and also a training app with home work to help them be ready for the test (Race day)
Driven consists of 3 programs. Development, National and Elite. The development program has youth riders from the age 6-15 currently. The national team has riders from the age 9-48. The Elite portion of the program is set up for those rider who are considered graduated expert riders, ages ranging from 13-23. Each program is based on the needs desired at the time you sign up.
It does. As well as communication, trust and the ability to believe in yourself and to help encourage those around you
Not just anyone can join the Driven team. There is a few things that we look for when choosing riders to join the program such as, committed, respectful, and humble riders willing to learn. The rest of the tools can be taught once those traits are found
You can email us at DrivencyclingAcademy@gmail.com
We had the opportunity to speak with some of the riders on the Driven Cycling Academy team. The following are questions and answers for a few of the Expert riders. In order to become an expert you must first win 10 Novice wins, then 20 Intermediate wins. This shows the levels of bmx each person can attain in the USA BMX.

The first step is to remove standing water from flooring, wet carpet and other affected materials. Once all the water is removed, dehumidifiers, air movers and other specialized equipment are used to dry the affected area. This typically takes 2 to 5 days, depending on but not limited to saturation time, type of materials and atmospheric conditions. We use moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to determine when your home is thoroughly dry.
Full restoration consists of two major phases. The first, mitigation, consists of demolition, cleaning and drying the structure. This phases typically takes 2 to 5 days. The second phase, repairs can take anywhere from a couple days to 4 weeks depending on the degree of damage and lead time for materials. Certain materials like Cabinets, Custom Wood, High End Floorings can take extended time to ship. We will work with and your insurance provider to get your property back to normal as quickly as possible.
The cost of water damage cleanup depends on the size of the flooded area and amount of time needed to handle the water repair. If your insurance policy covers the water damage you are only responsible for your deductible. The average water loss is just over $7,000. When properly dried in a timely manner you can prevent secondary damages or more costly issues, like mold.
Water damage certainly has the potential to cause mold growth. Mold thrives in moist environments with any moisture, especially high humidity areas. In order to keep energy efficiency, modern homes are insulated to reduce loss of energy. This also allows for moisture to stay hidden and not dry if not inspected properly.
Water damage is most often hidden. Some common signs of water intrusion are paint peeling, MDF base swelling, particle boards swelling, condensation, musky odors, damp or wet carpet, etc.
As the temperature has dropped Pursuit Restoration hopes you have been able to Winterize your property!
These are just a few tasks that can be done to prevent water damage or mold damage to your property.

Water damage always happens when we least expect it! That is why it is so IMPORTANT to identify water damage before it causes significant damage to the property. Water damage can happen for a variety of reasons.
We are now offering individual inspections for your PEACE of mind, as well as annual inspections for the COMFORT of knowing you are protected!
Inspections include moisture testing of all areas that have water supplies and inspection of attics and crawlspaces. Infrared cameras can be used to assist in showing existing water damage. This is a non invasive inspection which will help identify moisture issues before they become LARGE water losses or worse mold damage! Photo reports can be provided at customers request.
As in all water-related property damage, TIME is of the essence. Floors are at a greater risk for permanent water damage and mold growth if you don’t take care of water or moisture immediately. Hardwood flooring will absorb moisture quickly due to its density. Besides rapid response time, successful hardwood floor water damage repair depends on the type of flooring, wood, and finish, method of installation, amount of moisture, and replacement value.
For hardwood floor water damage restoration, consider hiring a professional disaster restoration company. They have the necessary knowledge and expertise and use specialized equipment for efficient drying. The specialized drying equipment is crucial in making sure floors are dried in time and to the correct moisture levels. However, if you want to repair hardwood floor water damage yourself, check out the tips below.
When dealing with a flooded hardwood floor, YOU must act quickly to save your floor from permanent damage and mold growth. Contact a professional flood remediation company, such as Pursuit Restoration, that can quickly mitigate the damage and implement the best course of action. Also, this could help learn how to avoid hardwood flooring water damage in the future.
Inspection is always crucial when starting to repair any hardwood floor that has water damage. Hardwood flooring comes in a variety of species, such as oak, pine, maple, and cherry. More and more exotic species are being used in flooring. Every type can expect different challenges in the drying process because of the varying levels of moisture absorption.
There are also varieties of flooring that look like wood but are not. These floors will sometimes have a laminate on the surface and a particle board substructure. When moisture gets beneath these floors, drying is nearly impossible. The inability to dry these surfaces is due to moisture being trapped under the laminate, which acts as a vapor barrier. For more help, call Pursuit Restoration to help you evaluate your flooring’s type and condition.
Professionals will also assess the initial installation method of the hardwood flooring. Original installation may be nailed, glued or installed in a floating method.
Once the technicians have determined the wood floor type and installation method, drying can begin. Using surface and/or subsurface drying methods and proper dehumidification, technicians can force airflow beneath the surface of the floor (in a positive or negative manner) to remove this moisture. It may also be necessary to access the floor from below for faster drying. Specialized equipment using drying mats can be placed to pull moisture from the ends of the hardwood floors. Hardwood typically has flutes that allow water or air flow to move in a parallel direction with the hardwood.
Effective drying of a hardwood floor is a slow process. It will sometimes take 7 to 10 days for the floor to release enough water to complete the forced drying process. Removing all the absorbed water from the floor can be costly, but very inexpensive compared to replacement.
The hardwood drying continues until the wood’s moisture levels reach the floor’s dry standard. At this point, nature will acclimate the floors to the atmospheric conditions they are installed in. Education in this process is key for a successful job. Let the restoration professionals at Pursuit Restoration help you dry your hardwood floor properly.
Once the hardwood floor is dry, there may still be damage to the floor finish. Finishes, such as waxes and polyurethane, may inhibit the evaporation of the absorbed moisture. They will sometimes have to be removed in the drying process to allow for moisture removal.
If the hardwood floor cups slightly, the finish may check and crack due to the movement of the wood product. This is a normal part of the drying process. Once the floor is completely dry, the floor can be refinished once it has acclimated. The acclimation process can take up to a few months.
Hardwood floor drying is a specialty. Our restoration professionals have the knowledge to properly evaluate the many types of floors and have specialized equipment to repair hardwood floor water damage.
