BGP DUAL ISP with IP SLA

Just curious if we can use both bgp with dual ISP for redundancy.  We're advertising a /24 to both ISPs and that is for inbound traffic.  They are using static route for outbound traffic. We're adding a second static route with admin distance and we will track this.  This should be ok and not have any issue?

This URL has a similar setup:  http://showipbgp.com/bgp-configurations/40-cisco/73-3-3-1-cisco-dual-bgp-with-as-prepend-redundancy.html for inbound traffic.  Ignore the outbound traffic as we're using IP SLA with tracking.

Also, noticed that we're not introducing a new ISP so there is a filter list to block any routes learned from the other ISP and vice versa.
