Eric Granado was born on June 10th, 1996 in Sao Paulo (Brazil). His passion for motorcycle riding began when he was very young. At just 7 years old, he won the regional competition held in his hometown and in 2005 he became the youngest winner of a race in the Brazilian MiniGP Championship.
Having shown early potential, Granado travelled to Europe to further develop and progress as a rider. In 2007, the young talent won the Spanish Mini GP 70cc Championship, and in 2018 he would do the same in the 80cc class.
By 2009, the Brazilian began competing in pre-125 and 125cc races in the Spanish and Mediterranean Championships. At age 15, in 2011, Eric Granado finished fifth in the CEV in the 125cc class.
In the middle of the 2012 season, the Brazilian youngster made his debut in the Motorcycle World Championship in the Moto2 category, participating in the final stage of the campaign. For the next four years, he remained in Grand Prix racing, making the switch to the Moto3 class.
The 2017 season saw him claim the Moto2 European Championship title in the FIM CEV, winning six races that year. That triumph opened the door to a World Championship return, and in 2018 Granado came back to Moto2.
Participating in the inaugural FIM MotoE World Cup season, the Brazilian talent became one of the top riders in the series over the past two years. He was third in the competition in 2019, with wins at the last two races of the year, held at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia.
In the 2020 campaign, Granado was one of the contenders for the title, adding another victory to his account at Jerez. At 24 years old, the Brazilian rider joins One Energy Racing team for a third season in MotoE, with an extensive experience of 53 GP appearances to his name, and the aim of winning the title in the electric racing series.
