Ok, so it’s not like the Pan Am’s where nations can enter athletes in any races they want so long as they have a quota. An athlete must be qualified in track cycling and road cycling to be eligible for an additional (unqualified) event?

 

No, an athlete can not compete in an event unless the nation has already qualified to it. A road race athlete can not compete in the omnium unless the nation has already qualified in it.

 

In cycling there are two types of quotas, athlete quotas and event quotas. A nation must have both in order to compete.

I can sort of understand why nations from weak continents deny their quotas, but for Europe it's a bit ridiculous. I doubt the French cycling team is so weak that they don't have anyone else that can use the quota and if not they'll drop to below the top 8 and won't qualify regardless as the European and World Championships still remain.

Can a country qualify a spot through individual sprint and Keirin (ie 2 quotas)?

I believe so, but the qualification document is completely unclear about that.
