W52–FC Porto–Mestre da Cor (UCI team code: W52) is a professional road bicycle racing team based in Sobrado, Valongo, Portugal, which participates in UCI Continental Circuits races.[1] The title sponsors are clothing brand W52, sports club FC Porto,[2] and paint merchants Mestre da Cor.[3]

Founded in 2004, the team spent the first eight years competing at youth level (up to under-23) until it was registered as a UCI Continental team in 2012, under the commercial designation of OFM-Quinta da Lixa-Goldentimes. That year, the team competed for the first time in the Volta a Portugal, where it won three stages and, through Alejandro Marque, the general classification.[4] The team won again the general classification in the following three editions, through Gustavo Veloso (2) and Rui Vinhas, and added victories in the team classification.[5][6]
