I can't speak to whether or not it's a change, but the qualification system for Rio is definitely 2 riders/NOC/individual event. Those nations that qualify through the Team Sprint are allowed to enter their riders into the individual events as well.

Are you thinking about how Team GB had to choose between Kenny and Hoy for the Keirin in London? Because if so, I can understand your confusion. I mean - I read the qualification rules and I'm still confused!

I get it now (I think). So if you qualify for the team sprint you can have 2 riders in each of the other events but they must come from your 3 riders for the team sprint. and if you don't qualify for the team sprint you get riders for the individual events based on the relevant qualifying criteria.
