If a continent is not represented in any sprint type events, i.e., team sprint, sprint or keirin, the continent's highest ranked NOC by UCI Olympic Track Ranking 2018-2020 for individual sprint gets one (1) quote place in the individual sprint.

If a continent is not represented in any endurance type events, i.e., team pursuit, Madison or omnium, the continent's highest ranked NOC by UCI Olympic Track Ranking 2018-2020 for individual sprint gets one (1) quote place in the omnium.

Any such allocations result in a reduction of places allocated to NOCs qualified through the aforementioned ranking, in reverse order of those ranked. Max reduction of one place per NOC.
