Eric Granado was born on June 10th, 1996 in Sao Paulo (Brazil). His passion for motorcycle riding began at a very young age. He started his motorcycle racing career in 2003, at age 7 won the local Sao Paulo Championship and finished runner up in the regional Schincariol Championship. 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, he won the Spanish Mini GP 70cc Championship and in 2008, the 80cc title.
The next three years saw the youngster compete in pre-125 and 125cc races in the Spanish and Mediterranean Championships, finishing 5th in the 2011 CEV Spanish Championship 125cc class at age 15.
2012 saw the Grand Prix rookie contest his first year in the Moto2 class, joining just before the Silverstone round. In 2013, he dropped down to Moto3 to hone his race-craft before moving to the Moto2™ European Championship in the FIM CEV Repsol in 2015.
The next two years of strong results and improvements were rewarded in 2017, when Granado took six victories and the title at the final round in Valencia to become the Champion. For the 2018 season, the Brazilian rider returned to the Moto2™ World Championship but they parted ways with the team before the end of the season.
The Brazilian talent has participated in the FIM MotoE World Cup since the inaugural season in 2019 and has become one of the top riders in the series over the years.
The first season with electric motorcycles was a successful one as Granado managed to take two victories. His good results led him to a top three finish overall.
Eric was unable to scale those heights again in 2020, recording a P7 Cup but accumulated yet another victory by winning the season opener race in Jerez. In 2021, Granado was a strong title contender but had to settle finishing 4th overall earning 3 more podiums with victories in LeMans and Assen.
For his 4th season in the all-electric class, Eric joins Lucio Cecchinello’s LCR E-Team hoping that together, they will win the FIM MotoE World Cup.
