September 17, 2005 – Marie Helene finished a brilliant 2005 season with a 3rd place overall for the 2005 UCI World Cup XC Series. At the Final race in Fort William Scotland, Marie unfortunately saw any hope of finishing 2nd overall, disappear when she took ill with violent food poisoning the day before the race. Having had 2 wins in the season, and consistent finishes in the top three, her overall 3rd place was secure even without a finish in Scotland. Gunn Rita Dahle of Norway took the title and Sabine Spitz of Germany was second.
