Kohl Piluso, an 8-year-old bicycle motocross racer, has qualified to represent the United States at the BMX worlds in Copenhagen, Denmark, at the end of July.

Piluso has been racing BMX since January 2009, achieved the rank of expert in less than one year and is currently ranked No. 2 among all 8-year-olds in the United States. In 2010, he took second place at the biggest race in the nation, the grand nationals in Tulsa, Okla.

Piluso trains and races four to five days per week and needs financial help for the trip to Copenhagen. Donations can be made via PayPal on his Facebook page, Kohl Bear Piluso, or call Garrett and Christina Piluso at 518-6791 or 864-3637.
