Definitely not normal.  I have plates with 100 hours on them that are still in spec.  If you really abuse them they will heat up and have issues but that is usually under extreme abuse (think 1st gear technical rocky uphill) then be OK when they cool down.  I have never had an issue in a mx type situation.  What type of racing?
