Cecchini beat Vittoria Bussi by 11 seconds, with Rosella Ratto third at 15 seconds.
The 2017 champion Elisa Longo Borghini was fastest at the time split during the 20.5km circuit but went off course in the final metres of the course due to confusion with course signage. Elisa Balsamo also suffered the same fate.
Longo Borghini tweeted soon after her ride: “Today I rode the ITT national championships. I was leading until the last 200 meters when I have been sent in the wrong direction. This 2018 has really played a concert on my nerves and I'm happy it's finished.”
