Viciosa became the first to win the men's elite race three consecutive years, and Radcliffe became the first to win the women's elite race two straight years.
Viciosa completed the run down one of the world's most renowned avenues in 3 minutes, 53.66 seconds. He edged Anthony Whiteman of Britain, the runner-up in 3:53.85, in a tactical race.
Radcliffe was clocked in a career-best 4:22.96, holding off 1995 champion Sinead Delahunty of Ireland, the runner-up in 4:24.87.
