The WithU Motorsport team has announced the signing of the Brazilian rider for the 2021 season of the MotoE World Cup.
WithU Motorsport welcomes Eric Granado on his team for the 2021 season of the MotoE World Cup. The Brazilian has two years of experience in electric competition and has established himself as one of the top riders in the MotoGP electric class.

This year the Sao Paulo rider completed his second season in the MotoE, where he has shown his talent by taking three victories so far: the races of the Valencia Grand Prix in 2020 and the first race of XNUMX in Jerez. Granado also set the record lap-time at Jerez and Misano.
