Monia Baccaille became the new Italian champion on Thursday with a well-timed attack at the start of the final lap with 15km to go in the 125km race. She escaped from an elite group of seven containing last year's winner Fabiana Luperini, time trial champion Noemi Cantele, Olympic medalist Giorgia Bronzini.

By the end of the lap, Baccaille had opened up an advantage of 1:28 to take the title ahead of solo chaser Laura Bozzolo. Bronzini took the sprint for third ahead of Cantele.
