I watched McKissick race two years ago at the Washington State Omnium Championships. I saw him in the night crit. He was impressive then and he's impressive now.
That's a bummer about the Missoula T Race #2 being cancelled. I guess Frozen Flatlands will be the next big thing. I've heard rumors of a big Missoula crowd attending. I'll be sharing my thoughts on the race all week. I raced it last year and was impressed with both days. It should be good.
