First, a campaign in the junior team (2013); then, two more years in an under-23 formation, with which he achieved second place in the Vuelta al Bidasoa in 2015, in which he also won one of the stages.


He made his professional debut with the Klein Constantia team in 2016. A year later, he joined the WorldTour with Quick-Step Floors. During that same year, he participated in his first three-week tour of the Vuelta a España.

In April 2018, Mas earned his first major victory by winning the final stage of the Vuelta al País Vasco. On September 15 of the same year, he achieved another victory in the 20th stage of the Vuelta a España, in the Collado de la Gallina, placing himself in second place in the general classification.

During 2019, he participated in his first Tour de France. Despite being at the top of the general classification from the start, he lost all hope of winning in the 15th stage due to stomach problems. In August of that year, the Movistar Team announced his contract for the next three seasons. In his last race with the Deceuninck-Quick Step before joining the telephone team, he won the overall Tour of Guangxi and maintained the lead he had achieved by winning the queen stage.

After joining the Movistar Team, Enric Mas debuted in some Challenge a Mallorca trophies. Subsequently, he participated in the Vuelta a Murcia, although he had to abandon the first stage due to a cold. He also competed in the Vuelta a Andalucía. Despite not standing out in the races prior to the Tour de France, he arrived at the French round with the goal of finishing in the top 10–15. Although he initially lost time to the leaders in the early mountain stages, he improved his performance over time and finished in fifth place. He closed the season by participating in the Vuelta a Spain, where he again finished in fifth position and took the white jersey as the best youngster of the race.

In 2021, his main goals were the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España. He won the third stage of the Vuelta a la Comunidad Valenciana and led the race in April, his first victory since joining the team. However, he lost any chance of winning overall when he suffered a puncture in the time trial the following day. In that year’s Tour de France, he intended to improve on his position from the previous year and compete for a place on the podium. Despite his efforts, he could not achieve that goal and finished the race in sixth place, one spot below his performance in the 2020 edition. However, in the Vuelta a España, he managed to get on the podium by finishing in second place.

The beginning of 2022 was marked by falls that prevented him from competing for the podium in the Tirreno-Adriatico and the Tour of the Basque Country. He experienced similar difficulties in the Critérium del Dauphiné, which led him to abandon it after losing all chances of winning.

On June 27, 2022, days before the start of the Tour de France, he extended his contract until 2025. He did not complete the race, having tested positive for COVID-19. Once recovered, he participated in the Vuelta a España, where he finished second again.
